J.N June of 1937 when the first members of the class of 
1941 arrived at the Naval Academy, the drums of war were still faint and far away. Italy, it is true, 
had invaded Ethiopia, Germany had remilitarized the Rhineland, the Spanish Civil War had begun, 
and in the short space of a month Japan was to invade China. But the 

greatest empire of them all, the British Empire, 

given new unity by the newly-crowned King 

George VI, was still at peace with the world, 

and in Geneva the League of Nations was r=s^s£?-~ ?3 ^53 L? 

working to preserve that peace. 'SSg^T— ~-~45§li^" 

At home in the United States we were still engrossed in our own peaceful and isolated prob- 
lems of social security, Pan-Americanism, labor, education, and safe driving. During the next year 
we paid little heed to the rumblings of Europe's fast-growing war machines. We had our own 
peculiar national sorrows ... the last flight of Amelia Earhart ... and we had our own peculiar na- 
tional entertainments ... the World's Fair. . . . 

All the while rumblings from Europe were growing stronger and stronger- 
like mutterings of an approaching thunderstorm. With Munich came a slight 
lull, but by the time British conscription began in April of 1939 the ominous 
rumble of the Nazi war machine was a veritable thunder over Europe. . . . 

We left 



"N September 1, 1939, the war clouds 
over Europe unleashed themselves in a "blitzkrieg" that struck with blinding 
fury at Poland. In a short time Great Britain and France declared war on Ger- 
many. That same month Russia invaded Finland. 

In the spring of 1940 Hitler struck again and again with almost incredible 
speed. Norway fell, then the Netherlands, and finally Belgium. In quick 

succession came the collapse of the invincible French army, the flanking of 
the impregnable Maginot line, and the inevitable separate peace on the part 
of France. England alone remained. . . . 

With all the world shuddering at the horrible spectacle of modern mech- 
anized war, the reaction of the United States was almost instantaneous . . .

with her seemingly un- *WMB*^ " ' bounded confidtence in Youth, has thrust upon a grad- 
uating class at the Naval Academy responsibilities which ordinarily would not be theirs until later years. 






O the President of the United States 
we looked for leadership as the conflagration of diplomatic intrigue, 
invasion, and war threatened to engulf all of Europe. As Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, President Roosevelt, more 
than any other one man, held the destiny of the nation in the 
hollow of his hand. Fortunately our President combined invaluable 
military knowledge gained as Assistant Secretary of the Navy with 
statesman-like qualities and long political experience. With quick 
sureness he organized national defense. Conscription became a 
reality. The two-ocean navy began to take shape. After the first 
alarm had subsided, the nation breathed easier, secure in the knowl- 
edge that a keen eye and a steady hand guided the helm of the 
ship of state. 


Our C-in-C cues to s 


Secretory of the Navy 

The Secretary Meets the Wavy 


Superintendent U. S. Naval Academy 


Commandant of Midshipmen 



.OOKING back, we see our life at 
the Naval Academy not as a series of isolated events to 
be recorded in chronological sequence as so many who 
have gone before us have done; for to those of us who 
have lived them, June Week, the Ring Dance, Gradua- 
tion are more than welcome events in the academic cal- 
endar. They are experiences full of humor, pathos, 
tenderness . . . elements which escape the constrictions 
of time. . . . 

Taken as a whole, however, these individual ex- 
periences-episodic and disconnected as they may seem- 
tell a story. ... It is our profound hope, then, in the 
1941 Lucky Bag to accomplish a two-fold purpose: to 
recreate each experience as we knew it so that in later 

years we may relive our midshipman career and to combine these experiences into a story that 
will enable all who have never known the Naval Academy as we have to understand its tradi- 
tions, purpose, accomplishments, and customs. 

Today we graduate; tomorrow we go to join the fleet, but yesterday. . . . 

Yesterday we entered the academy. We expected much. A great deal has been said of 
the lure of the sea; little lias been said of the lure which attracts and holds the fancies of hun- 
dreds of young men from every station of life and every state in the union. Much has been 
said of the discipline and the training of the Naval Academy; little has been said of how an in- 
stitution manages to combine hundreds of creeds, hundreds of ideals, hundreds of diverse 
philosophies of life into one single, useful way of living— a service life of honor, patriotism, virtue, 
loyalty, and subordination. 

How was it accomplished? The secret lies hidden in the years. We cannot now retrace 
our steps, but we can focus the telescope of time back-back— all the way back to gray walls 
and green grass ... to honor and duty ... to wind and sea . . .to laughter and music.

kJMART as the Regiment of midshipmen looked every day, day 
in and day out, there was an added brightness about them when Saturday noon meal 
formation came around. Smiles were gayer, uniforms presented a more striking contrast 
of freshly-brushed blue and gleaming gold, and the sun glinted more brightly on polished 
shoes and cap visors. The inflexible routine of drill, exercise, and study was over for 
another week, and the air was charged with expectancy. The week was over, but the 
week-end was just beginning. 

Release from routine, however, was not all the week-end had to offer. It brought 
us sports, dancing, and sailing-not to mention feminine companionship! Undoubtedly most 

of that peculiar charm which haloes our memories of 
Academy week-ends is due to the girls we dragged. Meet- 
ing our drags... taking them to football games ... dining 
out... dancing... sailing., .and simply basking in the warm 
radiance of a pretty girl's smile ... these were the ingre- 
dients that went into the making of that most noble of 
institutions— the week-end !

'UR story has its beginning long before 
we sounded our trumpets before the walls of the Naval Academy. ...Somehow there came 
a time when we first felt the call of the sea, when we first dreamed of a lusty life of travel, 
romance, and adventure. But the most vital part of our saga is the four years spent at 
Annapolis learning the ways of the sea. 

Knowing that we were destined to come to the Naval Academy as the summer of 1937 
approached, we prepared ourselves for a transition from our various modes of living 
to whatever lay before us 


A (lame burned, and the moths drew ever closer to 
its enchanting light. That flame was a career, a 
vision of the future embodied in grey walls and a 
golden spire, grey ships and golden sunsets. And we 
were the moths, gathering and hovering about the 
flame, striving to reach it yet not knowing what it 
held for us, knowing only the magnetic enchantment 
of its irresistible glow. 

Yes, all roads led to Annapolis, and in the early 
summer of 1937 we, travel-weary and apprehensive, 
began to congregate outside the walls of the promised 
land, forming our battle plans for the conquest of 
the future. 

\\ 1 am \ room in rowN. 

We talked things over and tried to relax. 



With hope and fear in our hearts we 



After a restless night of impatience we 
arose to survey the walls we were about 
to storm ; we arose to old expectations 
and new fulfillments. 

As we started down Maryland Avenue 
toward the Main Gate, our hearts grew 
faint and our steps uncertain. During 
that last long mile a million thoughts 
flashed through our minds, thoughts of 
the future, for we were leaving the past 
behind. Our hearts must have missed a 
beat as we passed through those portals 
of promise and found ourselves surrounded 
by grey walls covered with green ivy, 
brick walks shaded by green trees, and 
marble monuments cloaked with tradition. 

We were sent to the Administration 
Building first to receive necessary instruc- 
tions, and we left there, slightly stunned, 
to cross the yard to Bancroft Hall. Our 
eyes missed little of the beauty about us 
as we half straggled, half marched, toward 
the impressive main entrance. 

Again our eyes were filled with wonder 
at the sight of marble floors and massive 
columns as we entered the rotunda ; the 
friendly little man who greeted us was 
dwarfed by its hugeness. 

Our pulses started to quicken and we 
were filled with misgivings about our 
health as he directed us to the sick bay. 

the tw/id ae<j/iee 

Our excitement and the long climb up to the sick bay made 
our hearts beat faster and our breath come quicker. Could 
something be wrong, something we had not thought about? 
We soon saw that the doctors would not forget anything, even 
if we had. With sweat dripping from our armpits and our 
blood pressure steadily rising, we went from room to room, 
from probing to probing. 

None of us was new to physical examinations, but this one 
meant more to us than anything else at the time — our whole 
future depended on it. And when we left Bancroft Hall, some 
of us walked with leaden hearts, knowing that dreams are 
unsubstantial things ; the rest of us felt a sense of relief, knowing 
that on the morrow would begin the life that we had sought. 

iSf having been appointed a midshipman in die United States Navy, do solemnly swear (or 
affirm) that Fwill support and defend the Constitution of the United Slates against all enemies, foreign 
and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, 
without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the 
duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God." 




Noon Formation on hie rear terrace. 

Formal room inspection. 

After we exchanged our civilian garb for white 
work uniforms we went to work with a stencil brush 
and a bottle of ink, but the rude clang of a bell soon 
interrupted us and we followed the mob to formation 
on the rear terrace. 

Finally we waded through the stencilling and pack- 
ing and were ready for room inspection. Then we 
began our task of learning the ways of men and the 


Our task brought to us a new language, the lan- 
guage of the sea and of Naval Academy life. We 
found the "Plebe's Bible," Reef Points, a great help 
in getting started on the right foot.

Hoist away? 

Sailing on the Severn. 

Not only mad dogs and Englishmen, but midshipmen as 
well go out in the noonday sun, and it beat us mercilessly 
about the head and shoulders. A cool shade and a tall 
drink would have been a blessing those hot days, but we 
had no time for wishful thinking ; we had work to do 

We started right in to learn our job of being naval officers. 
The Seamanship Department had the job of making sailors 
of us and we looked forward to the drills in the cutters and 
knockabouts. On the rifle range the instructors tried to 
make rifle experts of us as we paused time and time again 
in our firing to wipe the sweat from our eyes. The Executive 
Department tried to teach us that snap and precision which 
are essential to military efficiency. 

It takes a lot to make an officer and a gentleman-we 
found ! 
Pass in review ! 

Realizing that stamina and a sound 
body are essential for an exacting routine 
of work and watches, we accepted without 
undue complaint the course of physical 
training. Some of us found defects in our 
posture, and some of us had to learn to 
swim. Many of us had trouble with 
jumping or rope climbing, and the run- 
ning test was no lazy man's task. 

Sports furnished us much pleasure and 
benefit during Plebe summer. Some of 
us who went out for football would help 
beat Army some day. 

Grueling tests and brisk work-outs in 
i he gym showed up our weaknesses and left us physica1 ly better

When the last membei ol '38 received his diploma, 
we heaved .1 sigh of relief, and, yelling with joy, we 
dashed madly to dance in our freedom. But the 
spasm of jubilance soon subsided, and we were bus) 
preparing for youngster cruise we had new work be- 
fore ns, new pons 10 visit, new adventures awaiting 

Hardly knowing what to expect, we packed oui 
belongings and went aboard the battleships to learn 
more of the navy life. 

We lived here. 


We soon learned that the sea was something more 
than a mere enchantress ; she was an exacting mistress 
that demanded faultless proficiency in the use of the 
most common implements in the Navy, the scrubber

alone ; so we went to the throbbing engine rooms and 
to the sweltering fircrooms to learn of steam and 

It was not enough that we be engineers and deck 
hands; we had to learn something of every part of the 
ship's organization. Those signal watches taught us a 
lot about communications, and we gained a clearer 
conception of how a man-of-war is operated as a self- 
sustaining fighting unit when we stood watches on the

The most vital part of our training was in gunnery. 
After all, what good is a warship without guns, and 
what good are guns if they cannot be fired accurately 
and rapidly? Long hours were spent at the sight tele- 
scopes and the loading machines in preparation for the 
few minutes it required to fire. We showed more en- 
thusiasm for this phase of our training than for any 
other, always keeping in mind that the shots that hit 
are the shots that count. 

When the week's work was over, we assembled 
academy-laundered whites and sparkling shoes for cap 
tain's inspection — after that came recreation.

We spent our recreation hours in various ways. 
The ship's band usually played for our pleasure 
after the evening meal, and we enjoyed the movies 
in the evenings (if we did not have the watch). 

The Fourth of July was marked by smokers, 
contests, and merriment for all. We needed play 
to relieve the routine. 

Many of us took advantage of the sun in the 
afternoons, sprawling on the hard-wood deck 
while we replenished our supply of energy. We 
needed rest, rest from watches, working parties, 
drills, and those short nights of liberty.

The places we saw and the experiences we had in 
Europe are indelibly stamped in our memories. We 
loved France, the people, the beautiful countryside, the 
fine old buildings, the gay night life, and the smiles that 
hid a fear of the inevitable invasion from the east. 

Denmark brought us many happy moments and ac- 
quaintances that we were reluctant to leave. We all 
heaved a sigh of regret as we saw the continent sink 
below the horizon, not knowing what another year was 
to bring. 

Frederiksberg Castle. 

The Trianon. 


Three Musketeers. 

Beef Eaters. 

The England we saw was peaceful, good 
humored, and hospitable. Soap-box orators 
held forth in Hyde Park, and the bill boards 
were plastered with posters of an anti-vivi- 
section campaign. Yet even then one ear was 
to the ground to hear the rumble when it 
started on the continent. 

Although our visit to Europe had been ex- 
tremely satisfying, few of us regretted returning 
to New York's sky-scrapers, air-conditioning, 
and cold beer. And the hospitality and beauti- 
ful women of Norfolk upheld their reputation.

Somewhere beyond the rim of youngster year, like an oasis in the desert, 
lies the fabulous land of second class summer, the halfway mark of every 
midshipman's career. Strange tales are told of its inhabitants, the second 
class, and their privileges and responsibilities . . . tales of week-ends spent 
in Washington, Baltimore, and New York ... of ketch trips and country 
club life ... of beautiful drags and Second Class Day. . . . 

Small wonder then that the third classman trudges on through the perils 
of youngster year, heartened by the thought of what is to come; yet there 
is something child-like about his simple faith in himself, his slipstick, and 
his god whom he calls Tecumseh. Armed with only these he sets out with 
the mechanical ingenuity of the steam department to the right of him, the 
systematic scheming of the skinny department to the left of him, the accu- 
mulated wizardry of the math department before him, and the bodies of his 
fallen comrades all around him. 

We watch him disappear into the distance toward second class summer, 
that youngster who was ; then we turn away with a mental "bon voyage." 

Our dreams of a summci of recreation faded somewhal as 
soon as we were settled in our new rooms and saw the plans 
foi oui work laid out. We began to think that the old adage 
about all work and no play had been given a new twist. 

i | -m taste ol authority came when we were entrusted 

with the guidance ol the new plebes through their initial 
months at the Academy. \ certain sense of progress came 

I, being in charge ol a formation after two years ol waiting. 

Ol course there are always watches to stand in the Navy, 
but the) were incidental as long as our necks were not ex- 
posed to the axe. 

To work off the effects of those week-ends ol' frolic we were 
sent to the gym where we groaned and strained in order to 
avoid the stigma ol the sub and weak squads during the 
academic year. They work out on Wednesday afternoons 
when we have liberty ! 

Long hours we spent a1 the rifle range, where we combined 
aerial gunnerj with trap and skeet shooting. From that 
briel moment of sport we went to hours on the machine gun 
Bring line, learning to lead the target and to lire in bursts 
of three. 

The highlight of our work was that short period of flight 
Mining a turn at the controls, a little aerial navigation, a 
flight to Anacosii.i, camera and machine guns, and bombing 

Squads right and left ! 

Out in front. 

Tactical exercises. 

When we reported for", instruction in seamanship, we found our 
tasks more like play than anything else in the Navy. Sometimes we 
played with toy boats in Luce Hall, and at other times we went to 
sea in the Y. P.'s. We did not even mind the chief's little red book 
during the motor launch drills. Those impromptu races in the knock- 
abouts and whaleboats and the arrival of our new yawls in the middle 
of the summer were even more fun. 

Our introduction to navigation was interesting— after we recovered 
from our dismay at being handed that colossal armful of books . . . 
they looked well on a bookshelf though. . . . 

The work on the charts we endured because there were always 
interesting hours spent surveying or learning to use the sextant and 
the bubble octant— all part of that ounce of prevention to make sure 
that we never hear that loud crunching sound forward. 

Bumper drili

Gentleman artisan. 


I don't get it! 

Stop the turn ! 

Efficiency ! 

From the newly-provided inner-spring mattresses we dragged 
our drowsy bodies each morning. After breakfast we trudged 
with reluctant feet to the lairs of the steam and juice depart- 
ments to investigate the mysteries devised to plague midship- 
men on sultry days. 

The practical considerations of machinery, steam and in- 
ternal combustion engines, the rudiments of the art of welding 
and pipe bending, all of these we studied. A morning spent 
in testing our flying ability in the Link Trainer, and another 
spent in a submarine were experiences none of us regrets. 

After the few minutes of listening to a radio buzzer we knew 
that there was another hour in which there would be no rest 
for the wicked in general and the midshipmen in particular, 
sometimes the lectures afforded a cat nap or two, if the prof 
did not insist that we at least pretend to listen. Out of the 
maze of lecture, theory, and experiment one fact became clear ; 
iron filings will do strange things when properly induced by 
a power called magnetism, or something. . . . 

1/Ue Piaffed- 

During our plebe summer we watched with envy as 
the members of Thirty-nine enjoyed their Second Class 
Day ; we waited impatiently for the time when Our l)a\ 
would come. At last our dreams became real when 
Second Class Day arrived early in August. It was the 
"summing up" of the pleasures and privileges, as well 
as the responsibilities, of second class summer. Each 
of us became "King for a Day" as all the recreational 
facilities which the Academy has to offer were thrown 
open to us and our drags. 

Somehow, during the previous two years, we had 
become imbued with the spirit of the sea, and we turned 
eagerly for recreation to swimming and sailing ... to 
the wind and the sea and the sun. . . . 

Shoving off with heavy dates but light bai i \si. 

In the evening we went to 
Smoke Park . . . where we 
had dinner beneath the stars. 

Second Class Day moved toward its unforgettable climax 
at dinner time. Like any old park, Smoke Park has its 
benches and its bushes, its trees and its grass. But that night, 
unlike any old park, it had colored lights, a fountain, and a 
hidden orchestra. 

The summer air was soft and warm and the stars looked 
down like a thousand eager eyes . . . even the moon beamed 
his approval upon what must have seemed to him a fairyland 
almosl hidden in the night.

preserved its picturesque dignity and calm. And as the evening 
drew to a close, each one of us felt that the hop had been a fitting 
finale to a day he will long remember. 

Time out. 

Balcony interlude 




A summer would be incomplete without a cruise. 
Second class cruise was a pleasant one. There was 
plenty of room and good chow. The watches gave us 
some first hand experience in handling a ship, and 
various tours shed some light on the functions of other 
naval activities. The cruise was not long enough to be 
tiresome, but it carried us to beautiful ports and won- 
derful liberty. 

Steady as you go ! 

§1* •> 


Not lazy — just tired. 

Frankie passed the word. 


After learning some of the theory of navigation, seamanship, 
gunnery, and engineering during second class year, we went 
to sea in order to learn how this knowledge is applied in practice. 
First class cruise gave us training which was new to us. We 
learned how to assume responsibility, and we learned how to 
get things done. 

We enjoyed more leisure than on previous cruises, but mid- 
watches and navigation took much of our sleep— a four star 
fix gave us a thrill of pride, though. Our jobs were such that 
we gained an insight into the organization of a battleship ; 
we learned to maneuver in formation, to read and decode 
signals, to operate the engineering plant, and to direct the 
gunfire. We hope we learned, at least in part, how to make a 
fighting fleet.

In Old Panama, 

Back in the spring we were greatly disappointed when 
we learned that our trip across the equator to Rio 
would not materialize, but international affairs failed to 
consider the desires of midshipmen. We were not de- 
prived of pleasure, however, when we visited Panama. 
Tropical rain, green jungles, and old ruins colored with 
legend lent a romantic atmosphere to our short stay 

When we awoke one morning to look up at the 
Venezuelan mountains, we stood in awe of their majestic 
beauty. A thrilling trip over those mountains revealed 
to us hospitable Caracas nestled there in her loveliness. 
All of us brought back fond memories from Latin

Court of Peace, 
New York World's Fair. 

After stopping for a few days in Puerto Rico and the Virgin 
Islands where we enjoyed the sunshine, the swimming, and the 
rum, we turned again northward— to ever-fascinating New York 
and quaint old New England. 

No sight stirred us more than the spires of Manhattan rising 
magnificently before us as we swung to the anchor in the North 
River. The liberty boats discharged their cargoes of eager youths, 
and they rushed to join the hustling horde of humanity that will 
always be New York. We were the guests of the World's Fair 
and the Rockettes — some of us were lucky enough to get dates 
with those lovely dancers. We swarmed to the theaters and to 
the night clubs, hungry for the excitement, the adventure, that 
waited in every by-way. 

Our brief stop at Newport allowed us to renew old friendships 
and to tour the Training Station, the Torpedo Factory, and the 
War College. Then, for the first time in history, the cruise went 
to Boston where we were royally feted. 

After that period of play we had to go to work again — to 
Guantanamo and target practice and an early return to Annapolis. 

Then came September leave!

into the life of the civilian world, at least the brighter 

side of it. We slept when we were sleepy; we danced 

in the wee small hours; we lounged on the warm 

beaches; w<- fished in the cool mountain streams and

warned us noi to forget. To the regiment of 
midshipmen September, not February, is the

For three years conjectures had been made as to who would be our 
stripers and many bull sessions centered around the weighty subject - 
"Who do you think will be five-striper in our class?" But upon return 
from leave, everything was settled, and small groups gathered around 
the regimental organization posted on the bulletin board to pass 
judgment on the choice of the powers that be. And here they are!

Life has its dark moments everywhere, and so all is not 
peaches and cream at the Naval Academy. Most oi thes 
moments occur at regular intervals, but there is little comfort 
in reveille every morning in general and Monday morning in 
particular or the weekly posting of the trees, or the mevitable 
crash of a spilled steam kit at each P-work.

Most ol every officers time in the Navy is 
spent standing watches. In order to be ready 
for the responsibility of taking over ihc deck

these privileges were overshadowed by the

of the watch duties.

Many other extra jobs came upon 
watch through the years, and in addi- 
tion to being assistant mates of the 
deck and company mates, there was 
always the possibility of being an 
usher at the movies or football game, 
or being called upon to show a group 
of girls around the yard, or being the 
sea wall detail during the rest period.

Anyone who lakes that old adage about "early to bed 
and early to rise makes you healthy, wealthy, and wise" 
too seriously would certainly be disappointed if he took 
a look up and down the corridors of Bancroft Hall at 
iiin -, some morning. Nowhere in the world could he find 
mm li .1 prize collection of tousled heads, lugubrious coun- 
tenances, and woe-begone expressions. Just after leave 
ii seemed almost impossible to get back in step with the 
exact routine of Bancroft Hall, where each moment is 
planned, and he who operates behind schedules is cer- 
tain to suffer. Of course, all one need do is follow 
Article 3000, U.S.N. A. Regulations, and he will never 
go astray, for thai article lisis the time of every forma- 
tion, study hour, and drill that must be attended, but 
. . . well, it's 1 good trick if you can do it. . . .

The first step of the day was getting dressed and 
ready for breakfast formation — for who knew 
what morning the D. O. would inspect for shoe 
shines? After breakfast came half an hour of 
light housekeeping, to get the room in shape, the 
beds made, and the dust brushed off the most 
conspicuous places. The first class was at 0745, 
and from that time on, study hours alternated 
with recitation periods until the drill period in 
the afternoon. The drills were in more practical 
subjects, such as sailing, sub-chasers, and in- 
fantry. The old saying, "A place for everything, 
and everything in its place," had been modified 
at the Naval Academy to read "A time for every- 
thing, and everything on time."

For every recitation each instructor was re- 
quired by the regulations to give each midship- 
man in his section a mark. Thus the little red 
book in which these marks were kept was the 
center of attraction in each section room, and as 
soon as the marks hoc in it, the class relaxed — 
the battle was over for another day. The con- 
tents of the red book are carefully hidden, and 
when it was last seen looking coyly over the edge 
of the instructor's pocket as he left the section, 
one could not help but wonder what stories it 
could tell — of success and failure, of tragedy and 
elation. . . .

Halt — left face — fall out — draw slips — man the board— the picture works the problem 
— don't start the P-work until I say start the P-work — eternal vigilance is the price of 
good navigation — youngster year is fruit. . . . All of these familiar sayings, passed 
down through generations of midshipmen, recall to mind four years of academics, by 
the Severn, spent learning the fundamentals of the profession of being a naval officer. 
Mathematics, English, Languages, Ordnance, Navigation, Chemistry, Physics, Ele< - 
tricity — all these form the parts which must be molded into the background of the 
successful officer.

Soon after graduation many members of the 
class of 1 941 will be engineering officers in ships 
throughout the fleet. To start them in their duties 
they will fall back on the teachings of the Steam 
Department— Naval Machinery with its boilers, 
auxiliaries, and turbines; thermodynamics and its 
Mollier diagram ; and the general background of 
engineering acquired in the classrooms and shops 
of Isherwood and Melville Halls.

Steam, more than any other 
subject plebe year, served to 
endoctrinate us with the neces- 
sity of careful and painstaking 
observance of directions. Step- 
by-step, with the instruction 
sheet our only guide, we built 
up our work during those long 
hours at the drawing board. 
Valuable as this early training 
was for the years of academics 
that lay ahead, there were 
shadows of still other things to 
come; and for many of us 
there proved to be quite a bit 
of similarity between a plebe 
trying in vain to focus his eyes 
as he leaves the drawing room 
and a first classman feeling for 
the doorknob leaving the eye 

exam room.

Study hour was the technical name for 
that very, very short period spent in Ban- 
croft Hall between those two long ones 
in the academic buildings. By some 
strange coincidence, however, all three 
periods when actually timed seemed to be 
of equal length, but every midshipman 
knows that it just couldn't be. The 
proper technique of getting the most out 
of the study hour with the minimum of 
effort takes years to develop. But if you 
see some midshipman who can get a hair- 
cut, read the leading story in Cosmo, write 
a letter, listen to the radio, during one 
hour — and then put on his hat and coat, 
reach for the doorknob just as formation 
bell rings, and go off to ordnance with a 
smile — you see what we mean. . . .

To the Department of English, History, and Govern- 
ment was entrusted the latter part of the task of making 
us into officers and gentlemen. To supply the cultural 
needs of our course, they gave us composition and 
English literature plebe year, Naval History and govern- 
ment youngster year, diplomacy, public speaking and 
modern reading second class year, and modern European 
political history first class year. They also sponsored 
Friday evening lectures by prominent men in the affairs 
of the world, and supervised after-dinner speaking. 
With this training, they sent us to the corners of the 
earth to be judged as representing our country wherever 
we may be.

French, Spanish, Italian, or German, we began during plebe summer to

cruise gave the French students a chance to try their skill upon the some- 
times bewildered natives, and first class cruise took us to South America, 
where the Spanish students had their chance. The Department fosters the 
Language Clubs in Bancroft Hall for those who make a hobby of this study, 
and each year gives an interpreters' examination to the graduating class. . . .

Since each graduate of the Naval Academy receives the 
degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, he 
must of necessity spend many hours in the classrooms and 
laboratories of the Juice Department. Plebe chemistry, 
youngster physics (with its never-to-be-forgotten lectures), 
second class d. c. electricity, first class a. c. and radio! The 
laboratory periods were usually far from dull, as we worked 
to the tinkle of breaking glass, crashing circuit breakers, the 
whine of over-speeding motors, or the pop of an ammeter 
connected across the line.

Study hours were designed primarily 
for preparing lessons, but there are 
many other little odds and ends which 
must be taken care of throughout the 
day, and they usually take up part 
of study hour. The barber shop, the 
tailor shop, dental quarters, and the 
midshipman's store draw their clien- 
tele from those people with enough fore- 
sight to read that fourth period steam 
the night before so they can devote the 
third period to getting a haircut. Then 
there is the classic story of our class- 
mate who stood in line at the store for 
half an hour while his battalion was 

Only a TRIM, Pi E \si 


After the fourth period comes noon 
formation, at 12:25. As tIie returning 
sections fall out and go to their rooms, the 
all-important question resounding through 
the halls is : "Where's formation, Mate?" 
And the answer is usually "outside," 
which means that everyone is expected to 
look his best, because his shoe shine, best 
suit, and posture will probably be in- 
spected by someone before the formation 
is over. The Drum and Bugle Corps 
also get a chance to perform, and at the 
command "Battalions Forward, March," 
beat out their famous step. Soon the 
terraces are deserted, except for Laddie 
or Angus, the regimental canine mascots, 
who usually come to formation and forget 
to march off, and the regiment has gone 
to lunch. 


The Department of Ordnance and 
Gunnery opened fire second class year 
with a "sketch and describe" broad- 
side, but before long settled down to 
a war of nerves — the success of which 
depended on subjecting each midship- 
man to Sheet io's, splash diagrams, 
general all-around table punching, 
and giving him what seems to be 
only half tiic time necessary to com- 
plete the work. But a well-planned 
course, supplemented with rifle, pis- 
tol, and machine gun practice, aerial 
bombing, torpedo drills, and battle 
practice on each cruise, give our Navy 
what we believe is the most accurate 
gunnery in the world.

It was surprising to find in our first 
regular classes in Seamanship and 
Navigation, second class year that 
we had already been rather pain- 
lessly initiated into these twin sub- 
jects. The plotting mom drills and 
lectures on rainy afternoons, the sail- 
ing drills and qualification tests, and 
cruise experiences formed the back- 
ground, and Ihe instructors of the 
department then took up the problem 
of making us seamen alcrl enough to 
get through New York harbor with- 
out a "f.iux pas," and navigators who 
will never have occasion to hear that

Suspecting that climbing to the 
fourth deck nine or ten times a 
clay is not enough exercise to keep 
a midshipman in shape, the De- 
partment of Physical Training took 
over the job of starling us out 
on the trail of the body beautiful. 
Plebe summer the gym tests and 
swimming tests set forth a standard 
to attain, and just about the time 
everyone agreed they weren't so 
hard, it was time for the next tests. 
But, one by one, the members of 
the sub squad and weak squad 
successfully passed their tests, and 
we went to the Fleet realizing the 
importance of keeping lit.

Since a well rounded education must 
contain the practical .is well as the theoret- 
ical, at drill period each day the accent 
was placed on learning to do by doing. 
Drills were held in steam and juice to show 
the application of the lessons recently 
studied. In seamanship, sailing, rowing, 
i.h lies, and aircraft, drills were held. The 
drills which one thinks of first, however, 
are infantry drills — probably because they 
are held so much oftener than the others. 
Who knows what amount of horsepower 
has been expended on Farragut and Wor- 
den Fields, by the countless thousands of 
midshipmen who have marched up and 
down and across them since the founding 
of the Academy, while ceaselessly going 
through the manual of arms?

Academy as there are different kinds of people. For 
those who are more skilled in certain sports, those short 
hours after drill are spent in varsity practice ; the great 
majority, however, are left to their own resources. They 
may go to the gym for a workout, go swimming, catch 
up on their studying, serve extra duty, or take advantage 
of the facilities of one of the branches of the ever-popular 
radiator squad. The members of this organization 
spend their time sipping "cokes" at the soda fountain, 
playing bridge, discussing the foreign situation, or merely 
holding bunk drill. But no matter how the time is 
spent, it is usually enjoyed (with the notable exception 
of extra duty), and it all goes to keep Jack from becom- 
ing a dull boy from all work and no play.

Twenty-six times a year each person pictured on this page endured a l,.-.,,l.,. I„ 
of major or minor proportions, and that's a lot of headaches. But to put before 
the regiment the weekly conglomeration of news, humor, art, fiction, sports, and 
advertising that make up The Log required the expenditure of a lot of extra ergs. 
Sunday nights during study hour you could find a glum looking bunch occupying 
The Log office, reading copy, editing, blue penciling, debating whether jokes would 
pass the censor, all under the direction of the pint-sized man of ideas, Eddie '1 ui kei . 
Wednesday afternoons the publication office would assume airs of chaos as frantic 
efforts were poured into "making up" the pages for kindly Mr. Mac to lake back to 
Baltimore for printing. Friday afternoons the watch squad delivered a copy of the 
finished product to each of us, while the circulation staff juggled addresses to keep 
up with our changes in O. A. O.'s. Seldom, if ever, did we give any thanks, and it 
was traditional not to laugh at the jokes, but the magazine nevertheless was a definite 
addition to our weekly enjoyment and saved our writing many details home.

Our Regimental Christmas Card goes to every 
state in the union as well as to many foreign 
ports where we have made close friends on sum- 
mer cruises. Its preparation, therefore, is im- 
portant to the last detail, which accounts for 
the almost weekly meetings that Chairman Walt 
Seedlock called during the entire year. Nor was 
their labor lost, for a wealth of grateful apprecia- 
tion poured in from relatives, O. A. O.'s, and 
friends in all quarters. 


Belles lettres finds its place outside the English class- 
rooms at the Naval Academy in the Trident Society. 
Four times a year the combination of poetry, art, fiction, 
and professional articles went to press, very material 
proof that a midshipman is something more than a 
uniform and a mind full of calculus. Also under the 
cognizance of Bud Wynkoop's organization is the Trident 
Calendar, a boon to the regiment both for personal use 
and as a fitting Christmas gift.

Varied and sundry were the pursuits that 
occupied us between the time the five striper 
ordered "March Out" at evening meal and 
the call to study hour at 2000. Publica- 
tions, drama, music, hobbies, or oratory 
beckoned to many. Others, possessed of 
strong gregarious tendencies, favored the 
time honored bull sessions of Bancroft Hall. 
The Department of English, History, and 
Government called on the first class to enjoy 
after dinner cigars while learning to speak 
on our feet. The Quarterdeck Society had 
the same goal, and employed informal dis- 
cussions, heated debates, spirited arguments 
over rules of parliamentary procedure, and 
an annual public speaking contest open to 
the entire regiment, all good training for 
our future appearances as representatives of 
the Navy before public organizations.

Welcome indeed were the regularly scheduled regimental hops that we 
enjoyed in Dahlgren Hall and the first class hops in the seclusion of Mem 
Hall. Behind those events were the socially minded men of the Hop Com- 
mittee, and theirs was the task of arranging details beforehand for the music, 
lighting, decorations, and refreshments. During the progress of the evening 
itself they were in evidence escorting the hostess and befriending the lonely 
stags who wished introductions to lovely ladies, the sword belt the symbol 
of their office. For our own Ring Dance, special efforts were expended, and 
the results obtained will linger long in our memories. We are indebted to 
the Ring Dance Committee for securing Glenn Miller's orchestra and for a 
masterful arrangement of the eventful evening, from dinner in the mess hall 
to the last strains of the National Anthem.

for originality is at a premium. For 1941 
the committee's design, accepted by class 
vote, was simple and effective — a full- 
rigged ship and crossed swords between the 
wings of an eagle perched on a patent 
anchor. This laid the foun- 
dation for the work of the 
Ring Committee. 

During plebe year they gave us the design for our emblem

as many as ten or twelve

We knew the Radio Club 
was busy most of the time 
because we could tune in 
ourselves and hear them 
chatting with hams all over 
the country. Swede Svend- 
sen, as President, held reg- 
ular code and theory classes 
to qualify new men for op- 
erators' licenses and to in- 
struct them in the use of the 
plentiful equipment. They'll 
all be far in the lead as com- 
munications officers. 


Not content with the 
amount of math that seems 
more than sufficient to floor 
the average midshipman, 
the savoirs of the Math Club 
pursued the demon calculus 
down devious roads into 
ordnance, music, and even 
parlor magic. Doctor 
Moore, department repre- 
sentative, offered lectures on 
advanced pure math, but 
Presidents Jack Smith and 
Bill Rowen seemed to be the 
only two who pretended to 
understand it all.

The Log needed cartoons, covers, 
and photographic layouts, The Tri- 
dent requested charcoal or pen and 
ink sketches, the Masqueraders and 
Musical Clubs wanted advertising 
posters — and the Art Club an- 
swered the calls. Dynamic Jim 
Bartlett, as President, coordinated 
the work of preparing the required 
illustrations and designs to fill a 
myriad needs. And when not ac- 
tually busy filling assignments, the 
members indulged in such side- 
lines as oil painting and clay sculp- 
turing, outlets for ever-present aes- 
thetic tastes.

Aimed at increased linguistic 
ability, the Foreign Language 
Clubs were of special benefit to 
those who sought qualification as 
interpreters. Special language 
tables in the mess hall, where Eng- 
lish was taboo, provided daily op- 
portunity for vocabulary building, 
while foreign language motion pic- 
tures offered a rare chance to 
acquire practical knowledge of 
everyday phrases. Most to be re- 
membered of the weekly meetings 
was probably the singing of "La 
Marseillaise," "Stillc Nacht," or 
"En Alia Rancha Grande."

Even When the bugler had sounded 
study hour and most heads were 
buried in books there were still 
activities tfiat called strong. 

Evening study hour marshalled most of us to our books 
to prepare for the next day's battle with academics. 
Timeouts were called by some to write letters home or to 
pen an invitation for the next week-end ; there was laun- 
dry to be stowed and the morning paper yet to be read 
completely. There were those, too, who could afford 
to minimize on homework and who gave freely of their 
time toward various endeavors. Class officers met for 
determination of class policy. The Log sent men out to 
comb the decks for jokes, articles, and subscriptions. 
Musical club practices infringed on the "boning period." 
And the Lucky Bag staff worked on in the night, long 
after taps. But tomorrow was another day. . . .

An extra hour of sleep never seemed enough to com- 
pensate for the late hours of Saturday night, but Sunday 
morning routine provided some spare time for cat- 
naps before it was time to continue enjoying the week- 
end in earnest. First we had to read "Terry and the 
Pirates" in the comics, then turn to on our rooms for 
formal inspection, One battalion each week marched 
to Mem Hall to hear the reading of the Articles for the 
Government of the Navy, and then it was time to 
follow the Hellcats over to Chapel.

What really made Monday, mornings the 
ebb tides of our week-to-wcek existence was 
the sharp contrast the firsl recitation offered 
to the pleasures of Sunday afternoon and the 
memories of Saturday's hop. Movies in the 
yard, informals in Smoke Hall, Sunday sailing 
or "ketching" with drags, or long rambles to 
explore the wilds beyond the County Bridge 
all were i rammed in before the bell foi evening

inclined classmates of the (dee ( Hub, Mandolin

designed to suil every taste from classical 
renditions to jam sessions de luxe.

More than a few of us were addicted to singing in the shower, but there was 
more real pleasure to be had from joining in with other voices to harmonize 
on the ever popular "Desert Song," or "The Road to Mandalay.' 1 Those who 
roomed overlooking the first battalion court yard were treated to a free concert 
when the Glee Club's vocalizations drifted up from the music room in the base- 
ment. Meanwhile third battalion men were able to hear practice sessions of the 
orchestra echoing from the band room, where baton waver Bill Farrel blend- 
ed the various instruments into a pleasing whole. In creating inspiring patterns 
of melody both organizations 
contributed to the regi- 
ment's enjoyment of "the

Navy's Captain, Ted Walker, 
first place winner over Army. 

Coach Earl Thomson and Manager John 
Palm are pleased at stop watch results. 


Saturday, 26 October, 1940, brought glory to Navy's iron- 
lunged, piston-legged cross country squad in New York City's 
Van Cortlandt Park. That afternoon Captain Ted Walker 
led his teammates to the coveted N-star victory over Army 
while swamping Princeton and Columbia at the same time. 
Ted was a consistent first place winner in meet after meet, 
with Earl Buckwalter pressing hard, and once came within 
seven seconds of breaking the course record held by Maryland. 
Cross country demands the utmost in training and endurance, 
and yet our harriers always had enough surplus energy to 
make dear to their hearts their training table theme song— 
"Be Kind to Your Web-Footed Friends. . . ."

"We want Bill! We want Bill! We want Bill!' - —

entrance and to maintain a fighting attitude until the 
final whistle.

Our 1939 football season, though marked with several defeats, was deemed a 
wholehearted success by virtue of the soul-stirring 10-0 victory over the Army. 
That game was a portentous one for the class of 1941, for it marked the first time 
that we had been present at a victory at a game played away from home during 
our three years at the Academy. Portentous it was, too, in presaging the 1940 

As a matter of fact, any football season at the Academy begins on the summer 
cruise. In the midst of tropical Caribbean heat and Boston fog, Captain Dick 
Foster led the squad in calisthenics on the deck of the good ship Arkansas, and 
more than one pigskin was left floating in the wake because of the limited area for 
running through plays. 

Sacrificing as usual a whole week of that precious Sep Leave, the squad returned 
to the Academy the first week in September to begin workouts in earnest with two 
practices per day. Because the academic year started two weeks ahead of the usual 
time, the regiment did not follow the procedure of seeing the first game on the day 
after the return from leave. We did, however, see the varsity in action in a rough 
scrimmage against the Georgetown squad — the same Hoyas who had been unde- 
feated for two years — and the regiment received intimations that here was a team 
that was above the ordinary. 

Two weeks later our visions were confirmed when the season opened with the 
traditional opponent, William and Mary, and our first victory went into the record 
books. Not one team, but two, won the game, and none of the grandstand quarter- 
backs were prepared to call either one the first team. 

Cincinnati brought a scrappy outfit, new to Navy's schedule, and a snappy, 
quick-stepping band led by a drum major and a feminine cohort who captured 
our attention immediately. We chalked up another victory and felt that the ball 
was rolling. 

Mindful of the great passing of Allerdice that had humbled us 28-0 the year 
before, we were wary of Princeton, our first major test. But Allerdice was effectively 
bottled up, and the scoreboard indicated a 12-6 tune of revenge. The first battalion 
came back with stories of their own battle, with some minor casualties, but with 
most of the goalposts as a trophy. Now our "two ocean Navy" was beginning 
to attract attention, even from our arch enemy of the sporting world, Mr. Considine. 

FORE THE Noire Dame game. 


Formed on the field to cheer the 
Princeton Ticer, the first batt 
found an Army contingent present. 

"Man the stands on the double! Fill 
up solid from the top down." We 
always had seats on the 50.

The third home game, against Drake from the midwest, made it four in a row, 
and as yet our captain had been kept on the sidelines with a leg injury. Up to the 
Yale Bowl in New Haven went the second battalion, enjoying Pullman berths and 
morning liberty to see the Bulldogs added to our string of victims by a 21-0 shutout. 
So far five first downs had been registered against us— an average of one per game. 
Mighty Penn was next on the list, with the same Reagen who had given us trouble 
in years past. And although Busik eclipsed Reagen and the first downs were lop- 
sided in our favor, Penn did all the scoring to win 20-0. To the last minute, though, 
the third batt set up a record for support, greater even in defeat than in victory 

Then to nearby Baltimore in five special trains went the entire regiment for the 
clash with undefeated Notre Dame. The Irish scored first, then we led, 7-6, but an 
inspired drive the length of the field gave them a victory 13-7. In our mess ha 1 
that night the Notre Dame team was our guest, and Coach Elmer Leyden himself 
credited us with a moral victory. Still confident, in spite of the two reverses, that 
we were backing the best team in the nation, we sent them up to tangle with Colum- 
bia, the fourth batt in attendance at Baker Field. The Lions held us on the one-foot 
line, and themselves missed a field goal when the ball hit the goalpost, and the final 

result showed two goose-eggs. ThnrsHav and then 

Two weeks later we gave the team a rousing send-off on Thursday and then 

Mowed them up to Philly on Saturday to find no rain, no snow-the sun showed 

its face' To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of what sports writers term Ae service

Jjigid temperatures, blustery winds, and heavy snows 
descend over the waters. Storm signals show an ominous warning 
to fair weather mariners. Across College Creek on cemetery point 
the Jeannette Monument stands as a silent reminder of those who 
found no ready shelter from the Arctic winter's grip. Quickly, as 
though fearful of a similar fate, the Academy snatches its small craft 
from the clutches of the ice floes and cradles them safely on Mother 
Earth. . . . 



Awaiting Another 
Army Victory. 

... no longer did infantry drills announce their 
unwelcome presence on the daily schedule, no 
more was heard the marching tunes from the 
bandstand. Instead, the rythmic thump of a 
lone drummer guided our footsteps across the 
yard. Classes, recreation, bull sessions, study 
hours — each ensued the other in their regular 
daily sequence. Day followed day, week fol- 
lowed week, and month succeeded month in 
the endless cycle of routine — until. . . .

Sid Zucun Week £am fyoUouvl 

January brought exam week cares pushing 
aside all past thoughts of holiday pleas- 
antries. At study hour Sunday night . . . 
(and another week-end shot) ... the vicious 
cycle began . . . boning, cramming, not 
knowing what to study or where to begin, 
yet making a futile attempt at both. Sleep 
washes away a part of the maze. . . . "Oh 
boy, Monday morning" brings forth new 
hopes. The religious plebe sacredly threw 
his penny at Tecumseh ; the faithless first- 
classman nonchalantly marched past the 
"Old Indian." Both suffered equally in the 
ensuing mental melee. Soon, too soon, 
"knock oil' work, put away your instruments, 
close your papers" resounded through the 
exam room. Beady-eyed and exhausted 
midshipmen left the "scene of the con- 
flagration," headed for Bancroft Hall — still 
hoping for the 2.5 which was probably not 
made — and dug out the texts necessary for 
the next day's exam. 

So it was for six days . . .but on the seventh 
day God has created rest . . . and therefore 
midshipmen, too, rested. The storm was 
over ; the calm ensued.

With a pat on the back and a handshake Captain 
Landreth sends Blue onto the Mat. 

Half Nelsons . . . arm locks . . . double bar arms . . . 
leg scissors . . . moving switches . . . breakdowns . . . 
the vernacular of the mat becomes a part of a wrestler's 
speech, just as the development of every one of the 
forty-two major muscles in his body — the pectoralis, 
the trapezium, the biceps, the estensors — becomes a 
certainty in his daily workouts. Following the heed 
of the theme "practice makes perfect," the wrestlers 
were on the mat every afternoon perfecting their holds 
and forming muscular synchronism towards the end of 
better representing the United States Naval Academy in 
the realm of collegiate wrestling. 

Intently watching their teammate in the ring are: 

CW«Swartz; Weems,q/c, 175 lbs.; Bennett, 3/c, 175; Carmichael, 3/c, 165; King, 2/c, 165; Searle, i/c, 155; Mitchell,

To guide them the wrestlers had two former national intercollegiate champions in Head Coach Ray Swartz and 
Assistant Coach Stan Hensen, both from the "wrestlingest" state in the Union — Oklahoma. And just as the Academy 
had become the haven of outstanding mat coaches, so has it become the home of two wrestlers from the Sooner State 
who have gained national repute: Third Classman Johnny Harrell and Plebc Kitt. With Captain Sandy Landreth, 
Clay Mitchell, and Bob Searle, all first classmen, and a host of excellent underclass mat material to "grunt and groan," 
the Academy presented a well-rounded team which upheld its prowess in the East.

It's a gala crowd that makes its ap-

opening bout of the Academy boxing 
season. Gold braid and gold lace adorn 
the officers' full dress uniforms . . . 
civilian tuxes interweave the back- 
ground . . , and studding the entire 
atmosphere are the women's multi- 
colored formal gowns, bespeckled here 
with a red rose corsage — there with 
white gardenias. A rousing cheer goes 
up from the Navy rooting section as the 
blue and gold boxers trot out to their 
ringside seats. Trainers and managers 
give them a last minute pep talk . . . 
then the 120 pounders step between the 
ropes and into the ring. The loud 
speaking system blares forth with the 
two contestants' names . . . the lights 
go out, only the giant ring lights glare 
down on the boxers in their corners 
. . . "silence" flashes . . . the crowd 
hushes in watchful expectation . . . 
there goes the bell — and the start of 
another boxing season at Annapolis!

"Keep that left out," Coach 
Webb cautions Captain Marion. 

For three two-minute rounds the boxers give and 
take punches — short jabs to the face, hard rights to the 
body, walloping lefts to the chin. Sometimes a punch 
connects and down goes the man for a K.O. But 
whether it be a one-round knockout or a three-round 
decision both boys are in that ring fighting hard. Months 
of hard training — roadwork, footwork, perfecting 

punches — all come to the fore in these fleeting moments 
of the fight. To the spectators the effort of the men in 
the ring may be partially appreciated ; but to those two 
fagged out boxers under the lights this is a fight to the 
last breath. From an inconspicuous seat in the stands 
Spike Webb watches his proteges and sees with grat- 
ification the development of another champion.

£/wm Vkej/i QwM 

To the spectators a swimming meet is remembered as 
a kaleidoscopic flash of swimmers posed at the start, 
divers turning gracefully in the air, and the breath- 
taking thrill of a close finish. There is something about 
the seemingly effortless ease with which an accomplished 
swimmer knifes through the water that never ceases to 
amaze the more land-bound onlooker. 

Behind this appearance of ease, however, lie months 
of intensive training and years of experience. But all this 
conditioning, although not initially appealing, has its 
reward in the intense competition of swimming meets 
where brute power is often defeated by ability and 
adequate training.

His name announced, the contestant finishes "chalk- 
ing" his hands, hoists his trou, and comes to a respectful 
parade rest in front of his apparatus. A nod from the 
judge, a hush over the audience, a tense snap to atten- 
tion, a springy approach, and the gymnast begins his 
work. Smooth muscles ripple in perfect coordination 
t<. answer his will . . . resulting in a series of intricate 
tricks which amaze-startle-awe the audience. With such 
grace .mm,} ease thai even the most difficult feat appears 
easy play, the gymnast completes his figure and comes 
to another parade rest. 

But don't be deceived thai short exhibition repre- 
sents solid months of work, for gym is a year-round sport. 
One i, ml see the price he paid for that exercise — the 
bruised muscles, the strains and sweat, the discourage- 
ment of being stale, the rejuvenation of spirit when he 
learns a new stunt, the work, drive, guts, and grit that 
must be spent before he can perform like that.

The gym squad 
























Still gym is more than a form of athletics ; it plays an important role 
in fitting the embryo officer for the service. First, and most obvious, 
is the physique and physical fitness that it provides for those who are 
serious about the sport. It develops independence and responsibility 
and the knack of "making yourself punch through" because you're 
on your own out there. Like all other sports, it inspires industry, 
perseverance, and the will to win. 

While watching the coach perform and dreaming of upholding 
Navy's outstanding record as Eastern Intercollegiate champion, the 
gymnast is best rewarded by getting back in full measure what he puts 
into it. If he works hard, he can hitch his wagon to a star, an N*.

LARYLAND'S spring is typified 
by rain... rain that seems to hold itself in reserve for the week-ends ... rain that forms puddles 
and that drips down our necks as we march to classes. . .but rain that brings buds to the trees 
and green freshness to the lawns in the yard, and makes the ground soft for the robins that 
seem to hold no fear of naval discipline. The wintry cold is gone, though . . . it's no longer two 
blanket weather". . . and Spring sneaks in somewhere during the long, unbroken stretch from 
Christmas to June Week. 

Some took Spring's arrival too seriously and

recognizes spring by changing the uni- 
form from blue cap covers to white. 
Astronomically, spring begins when the 
sun is at the vernal equinox, and the 
Nav Department made good use of the 
change of sign of declination of the sun to 
confuse P-workers.

During the spring of youngster year, 41's interest in 
sailing was put to a practical test when a bleak March 
day saw the launching of ten bright new International 
Dinghies for the newly-formed sailing team. The first 
was hardly underway when a flurry of snow began to 
fall, dampening everything but ardor. Now encom- 
passing the Vamarie, the schooner Freedom, and the cutter 
Highland Light, as well as the tiny dinghies, the Navy 
squad has placed well in races in both intercollegiate 
and in open competition, some consolation for the fact 
that no star can be won with an N in sailing.

Sailing was by no means limited, however, to those 
who made up the sailing team, for the very nature of our 
calling gives to every one of us an interest in the water. 
Though some of us came from the plains and some from 
the mountains, all soon learned the keen enjoyment to 
be found under a taut sail. Some few of us became real 
salts and graduated from knockabouts, whaleboats, and 
yawls, to the Vamarie, truly the queen of our Severn 
River navy. In our chosen profession we felt that the 
ability to distinguish a spinnaker from a staysail was 
indeed a necessity. And we know that wherever there 
are ships we shall find ample opportunities to continue 
deriving pleasure from this exhilarating pastime.

Fully half the entering plebes have never seen a lacrosse 
game and many have never so much as heard of the sport, and 
yet Coach Dinty Moore takes the raw material and builds 
teams that often are national champs. In the first minute of 
play of the 1940 opener against Dartmouth, Larry Green 
scored a brilliant goal to set the season rolling. Navy trounced 
seven opponents and dropped games to three, including the 
defeat at West Point when the Army caught the Blue and Gold 
stickwielders in a slump and won 13-2. In this sport '41's 
Captain Seaman, Crenshaw, Merdinger, Rubel, and Rowney 
were fated to see but two years of varsity competition due to 
the advanced graduation.

"Around the island" is a phrase that holds meaning only 
to the stalwarts who have bent their backs against oars in the 
Severn River Navy. The island is located a good five miles 
above the railroad bridge, and it took a maximum of training 
and endurance to sprint the last two miles on the way back, 
with tiny coxswains pleading, "Ten, gang — give me ten big 
ones!" and Coach Buck Walsh watching critically from the 
coaching launch. Crew requires a longer training period than 
any other sport, workouts commencing in the fall, continuing 
during the icy winter and into the warm spring until even 
after June Week, aimed at the four-mile grind at Poughkeepsie,

Navy golfers enjoy two very distinct advantages — 
they wear the sportiest uniforms while playing, and 
theirs is a sport they may continue to enjoy while in the 
service, for the port of call is rare that possesses no local 
golf course. Six victories against two defeats was the 
record of Coach Bob Williams' charges last year by a 
squad made up almost entirely of the class of '40. The 
graduation of '41 before the season opens removes 
Steidley, Klingaman, and Gaddis from competition, 
but the under class, led by Captain Bob Knight, have 
every hope of duplicating last year's triumph over the 
team from West Point.

Bill Tilden to his record, but during the

tennis in exhibition matches with top

the form of two hurlers and a short-stop.

Ins fertile brain, combined with years of experience at

this volume of The Lucky Bag. As right hand man, 
Mob Hoffmeister cracked the whip on the staff sub-

An efficient and progressive business staff was a prime 
necessity in underwriting the production of the biggest 
Lucky Bag in the history of the Academy. Whether 
or not their big business methods conformed to the 
principles of collective bargaining, maximum wages and 
minimum hours, free beer and paid vacations, no one 
knows, but they did achieve results — results which took 
the pressure off the editorial staff in fitting the make-up 
to the budget. Ned Rebard, Bill Daly, and Alan Ray

hotel owners, and manufacturers of naval products,

Unlike university annuals, The Lucky Bag 
cannot prevail upon a staff of several hundred 
underclass assistants — each class must perform its 
own labor. Major portion of the actual work on 
4.1's yearbook was done by the four associate 
editors, Mclntyre, Naymark, Jamison, and Moi- 
toret, and the lights in the publication office 
burned until close to midnight every night, as 
each man laid out his pages, arranged for de- 
sired photos, wrote copy and captions, and finally 
read proof. The aspirin in Moitoret's photo on

During First Class Year Bancroft Hall's front yard was a construction camp as two new- wings were added 

"When I was a Plebe"— '41 Saw Many Changes 

Metal replaced cloth 
cap anchors. 

Rubber heels and low shoes were a 
first class rate three years ago ; today 
they are worn by all hands. Metal an- 
chors first appeared on lapels and then 
on cap devices. White mess jackets were 
a welcome innovation for summer func- 
tions. We had to learn the new style in- 
fantry as "squads right" went by the 
boards. And white works made their 
long desired entry as the uniform for the 
final set of exams in sweltering May. '41 
was the last class to enjoy a 100th Night 
in conformity to the old traditions. 

Studying was impossible when workmen were 
demolishing the old mess hall outside. 

Supposedly the Naval Acad- 
emy is bound by tradition — 
unchangeable, but it is never- 
theless a far different Academy 
we leave behind as compared 
to the one we entered forty- 
four months ago. Physically 
the Academy has added a new 
museum, Melville Hall, the 
dispensary, a major addition 
to the Chapel, a new mess hall, 
the canteen, and now Bancroft 
itself is sprouting new wings. 

new chinaware for the redecorated mess 
hall was almost too attractive ! 
Arched roof and skylight took the place 
of the familiar red tile rear terrace. 

Smooth steel lockers were more sturdy, 
easier to dust than wooden antecedents. 

As plebes we participated in the last 
pre-reveille celebration of May Day in 
Smoke Park. We witnessed the passing 
of the kiss to the color girl and the similar 
tradition at the Ring Dance. First class- 
men shifted battalions for the final year, 
and "on the air" ceased to hold a special 
meaning in the mess hall, where dinner 
music startled oldtimers who came back 
to visit. Most drastic change, of course, 
was our early graduation and the con- 
sequent elimination of June Week. 

Headstart on a 
pre-cru1se tan. 

Arrival of Drill Week meant that 
textbooks are relegated to the shelves 
to collect dust they haven't known 
since Christmas. There were drills, of 
course, but with a minimum of march- 
ing and a maximum of precision. Yawl 
and whaleboat racing bring competi- 
tion that was both relaxing and excit- 
ing. But, above all, there is plenty of 
lime for recreation, for sunbathing, and 
for the beloved "bunk drill." Time, 
too, to renew the stenciling on clothing 
and check over equipment in anticipa- 
tion of the summer cruise. 

Perhaps the chief reason for the en- 
during popularity of Drill Week, 
though, is the fact that it is then and 
then only that we could turn our backs 
permanently on classes and examina- 
tions and face ahead to June Week. 

Among June Week visitors 
were three navy blimps. 

Twice daily we marched 
over to worden field. 

The class of 1941 was destined 
to see but three June Weeks, but 
still the very mention of the name 
brings fond smiles of recollections

our first Academy hop, the Fare- 
well Ball for '38, then dancing 
wildly around Herndon Monument

by ourselves as a class, and the

Even without the parades and hops, June Week pro-

We went sailing and canoeing and hiking, played bridge, 
sang songs, and made the days just as eventful as the

June Week was a rare series of 
events for the regiment and a show 
for the public. But not everything 
is for the public eye, and part of 
June Week is known only to the 
midshipman. So, for example, was 
the stencilling and cruise box pack- 
ing that had to be done before 
embarkation. Because '40 was the 
graduating class at our last June 
Week and they had innumerable 
things to occupy their time, han- 
dling the regiment fell into our 
hands, and '41 's first chance as 
stripers came when the underclass 
attended early chapel services on 
Sob Sunday.

Every Wednesday except during the 
Winter the regiment passed in review on 
Worden Field to the strains of "Anchors 
Aweigh," but June Week parades were 
a bit different. Instead of a small group 
of guided tourists there was a huge crowd 
of friends and relatives — someone in the 
stands to pick each of us out and perhaps 
even to evoke smiles with an excited, "Oh, 
there's Johnny!" As blithely as we took 
them in stride at the time, we can now 
safely admit having felt a tingle in the 
spine at being part of it. 

The band's stirring marches 
made feet a bit lighter.

dress trousers out from our closets.

enjoyed the color ceremony. 

Secret dream of every plebe is that he 
may some day become the company com- 
mander of the company winning the regi- 
mental competition, so that he may choose 
his own lady fair to the exalted position 
of Color Girl, long the traditional center 
of an impressive ceremony. Girl friends 
of '41, however, were doomed to disap- 
pointment, for our early graduation en- 
tailed the omission of this tradition. Our 
last color parade will probably be best 
remembered by the second company mem- 
bers of '43, for to them it bestowed the 
rare privilege of "carrying on" during 
June Week.

A forenoon parade during June Week witnessed the 
presentation of awards to the men whose afternoons had 
been filled with occupations other than loafing or liberty. 
To the athletes and to the leaders in extra-curricular 
activities the regiment and the public paid just recogni- 
tion. Always an outstanding feature of June Week was 
the arrival of the athletic squads from our friendly 
enemy on the Hudson. Highlight of this event was the 
meeting of the deLatour brothers — later Navy's Lloyd 
defeated his brother, Army's Paul, on the cinder path.

Ninety per cent of us rested content in the 
belief that we could have walked off with a prize 
in something if we had really wanted to — we 
just never got down to work. But John Elmer 
Dacey, Louis Harry Roddis, and Joseph Paul 
D'Arrezzo are the names that '41 will associate 
with its three June Weeks as the men who had 
the necessary combination of ambition and ability 
to come away from the parade loaded down with 
swords, pistols, watches, binoculars, medals, and 
cups. Willy Lemos and Jim Jamison were the 
first members of our class to share in this spodight. 

An ambulance ride was the easiest way back.

When we returned from that Monday afternoon 
dress parade to muster apart from the regiment, we 
were forcibly awakened to the realization that the 
moment had come — it was time to dress for our 
Ring Dance! Since our first days as plebes, we 
had waited and hoped and planned for this evening, 
long to be remembered for itself as a social event in 
addition to the significance it bore in bringing us 
the symbol of brotherhood in our calling — our 1941 
class ring. With O. A. O's there to enjoy dinner 
in the mess hall, with Secretary of the Navy and 
Mrs. Edison there to receive, with Glenn Miller and 
his nation's favorite band playing "Navy Blue 
and Gold" in soft, sweet tempo when the lights 
dimmed . . . will we ever forget that combination 
of perfection? 

Biggest evening of four years began when we entertained 
our drags at a buffet style supper in the mess hall.

The crew floats at Hubbard Hall took on a gay aspect under 
a canopy of vari-colored Japanese lanterns, more lanterns 
bobbed around in the darkness over the water where boat rides 
were a side attraction, while from above blazed the giant "N" 
formed of electric lights. It was a gala evening, and Navy 
athletes, forced to miss many a regimental hop because of 
training rules, were rewarded with this exclusive dance. Novel 
was the ice cream molded in the form of an "N," while the 
real feature of the evening was, perhaps, the conga lesson given 
by the genial orchestra leader. It lent itself admirably to the 
comfort of the smart "yachting" dress that is the uniform 
reserved for this occasion alone. 

Graduation is one of those unexplained phenomena foi 
three and a half years it remains tucked away safer) in the 
far distant future, and then, without sufficient warning, it 
jumps suddenly from the calendar, a reality. This behavioi 
was accentuated for the Class of 11)41, with graduation taking 
place on the 7U1 of February instead of the customary first 
week in June. Our graduation could not, therefore, be accom- 
panied by such traditions as the First Class Picnic and the 

buttoning on of Ensign's shoulder marks on white servit 

forms. Indeed, the sole remaining symbol of our having 
reached our goal amid the snow (lurries of February in a world 
torn by war was the addition of the gold knot to the handle of 
our sword— distinguishing mark of an officer in the United 
States Navy.

browed lad combines the swagger of the 
former and the cold shrewdness of the 
latter with pleasing results. Conserva- 
tive in taste as well as in thought and 
thoroughly logical in all action, Frank 
never finds time nor occasion to be gov- 
erned by mood. 

His casual lack of concern leaves him 
unscarred by the raging wars sponsored 
by the Academic Department. Physi- 
cally he boasts of a Scotch ruggedness 
that dates back to sea-faring warriors 
of note. The lure of the water doubtless 
accounts for a strong tendency to crew, 
though his love for a full pipe of raw 
tobacco and a love to philosophize with 
said pipe in hand has kept him from as- 
suming the role of the serious athlete. 
Couple this with an even-tempered dis-

of Chinatown in Los Angeles, Jack has 
some good stories. Undoubtedly I"' 
learned some Asiatic steps there, those

With this jovial outlook Jack often 
found his ideas ill conflict with those of

most won a fur-lined rifle for his efforts. 

Beneath all this lightness Jack has 
many admirable qualities. Blessed with

"T. H." was born in Kenbridge, Vir- 
ginia, and ever since then has been stop- 
ping the clock with his lengthy drawl. 
At three he saw a sound movie entitled 
"Annapolis Forever" or the "Rover 
Boys on the Severn" and he then im- 
mediately decided to become a genuine 
tar. His cheery pan netted him the pres- 
idency of his freshman class. The first 
year, of the two, he spent acquiring 
knowledge at the University of Rich- 
mond. The second he spent tearing 


down the reputation of Phi Kappa Sig- 
ma. His greatest hobbies are a lively 
game of cards, sub squad, or a drill on 
his "Beauty Rest." He miraculously 
est apes reports, never writes letters but 
receives plenty of mail, and thus leads 
a happy life. It may be said that, ex- 
cepting the cruise, "T. H." didn't fully 
appreciate youngster year, but second 
class summer brought a new light into 
his life and sold him on the Navy for 
good. Taking a keen interest in every- 
thing nautical and with a quick smile 
and winning personality, Tom will go 
a long way.

Raton, N. Mex. 

The little town of Raton up in the hills 
of old New Mexico yielded this stalwart 
son, full of Irish happiness and western 
ruggedness. He loves a good fight 
whether in the ring, on the gridiron, or 
with the Math Department. Eggy's 
shrewd business head gives him a flare 
for constantly promoting some kind of 
deal. His ability to apply the old com- 
mon sense has often won the game both 
in the class-room and on the field. For 
four years we have wondered about that 
uncanny sense of "E. A's" which always 
leads him straight to a new box of chow 
or to the latest magazine. Under the 
spell of His sparkling eyes and steady 
chatter the femmes weaken quickly. He 
likes their company, but romantically, 
the little lassies find "'Milky' 1 a hard nut 
to crack. 

Coming from N. M. M. I. with an en- 
viable record behind, Al has lived up to 
expectations and established an admir- 
able reputation here. "Milky's" per- 
sistence, bountiful energy, winning man- 
ner, and practical ability make certain 
his continued success in the game of life.

Everyone has heard of liulc Willie— 
the little barefoot boy with short pants 
.Hid a big smile -a regular fellow. \\ ell, 
this is our little Willie. He isn't little 
and his pants aren't short, but he has 
that big smile and he's a real pal. He 
hails from South Carolina, where, so 
says Willie, are grown the most beauti- 
ful girls in the world. That is a broad 
statement, but Willie is an authority. 
Long before he came to the Academy he 
acquired a reputation as a snake ; since 
then he has more than held his own. 

Academically, Willie stands in that 
section above the middle of the class— 
the backbone of the fleet. His most 
valuable accomplishment is that he is a 
gifted conversationalist ; something that 
will carry him far on the road to success. 
Willie's athletic occupations were 
nipped in the bud by a physical injury. 
After recovery, he became an all-around 
athlete and played for pleasure ; and 
that is what he is — an all around man — 
a regular fellow you'll never forget.

Chatham, Va. 

Dick came to the USNA from the 
heart of old Virginia— Chatham, to be 
more specific. And quite proud of his 
colonial environment he is, too. To 
him, Virginia is a place beyond re- 
proach, and he is always willing to ar- 
gue that point with anyone at any time. 

After finishing school in Chatham, he 
attended St. Christophers in Richmond, 
then Hampden-Sidney, where his inter- 
est was largely attracted to the college 
at Farmvillc, mainly due to a blonde 
influence. In case some one didn't 
know that Hampden-Sidney stands so 
high in Who's Who, all he has 1,, do 
is ask Dick. 

R. J's. nature is one quite rarely found 
at Uncle Sam's School for Little lioys. 
He is prone to be rather quiet, modest, 
and agreeable. He has never been 
troubled by the academic routine, but 
dors not shrink from studying. As a 
friend, classmate, and man, Dick 111. i\

New Haven, Conn. 

Smitty entered the Academy as one 
of the promising athletes of the class of 
1940s hut a scries of unfortunate expe- 
riences with the medical department put 
him on the sick list fur a year and out 
of athletic competition. Although his 
entrance into our class was thus acci- 
dental, his ready smile with the slightly 
cynical droop at the corner has made 
him a popular member of "41" and won 
for him the soubriquet of "Smiling 
Smith." Each Saint Patrick's Day 
found Smitty battling for the supremacy 
of the shamrock against his Scotch and 
German roommates. During the eve- 
ning "bull sessions" Dick was always in 
the liay, vigorously upholding any side 
of any question. His ability to use his 
wits quickly together with his use of 
"common -sense" reasoning generally 
convinced any opponent that Smitty 
was right. His fine collection of classi- 
cal recordings was increased nearly ev- 
ery Wednesday afternoon and became 
one of the most complete at the Acad- 

Memphis, Tenn. 

Stew is a true Southern gentleman — 
with the true Southern gentleman's taste 
for leisure, beautiful women, good 
books, fine horse flesh, and mint julep. 
Happily however his Scottish ancestry, 
with its sobering influence gives him an 
easy-going and well-balanced character. 

Memphis on the Mississippi is home 
to Dick and he is always ready to defend 
his native state of Tennessee against all 
comers in any issue from the Democratic 
party to child marriages. After study- 
ing chemistry for a year at Southwest- 
ern, Dick decided in favor of Navy 
stripes. At the Academy he proceeded 
again like the true s.g. to acquire his 
education with the effortless ease of the 
true savior. 

Dick's friendly and even disposition 
coupled with his limitless capacity for 
enjoying life, make him an ideal com- 
panion both aboard ship and on liberty. 
We hope to run into him again in the 
future — be it Newport or Shanghai and 
introduce him with our time worn

course — not a condition."

Regardless of the time of day you'll 
never fail to hear a burst of song in the 
corridor. Perhaps the words are not 
obvious to most persons, yet the rendi- 
tion never fails to bring a smile of the 
most critical. Yes, Ramon still holds 
dearly to his Spanish beliefs — to him 
there is no music, words or rhythm that 
even dared to approach his own. 

Don't misunderstand us — Ramon has 
spent some five or six years up here in 
the States and has achieved a great 
many things since his entrance. Man- 
cho's efforts have extended to include 
numerous activities : an appreciation of 
classical music, argument especially on 
philosophy, and letter writing. He is 
best summarized, perhaps by "non- 
women and song." 

Never failing to exhibit a jovial, care- 
free manner when in any group — Ra- 
mon can be very diligent and serious. 
His natural ability, personality, and 
manner of cultivating and keeping a 
host of friends give a shipmate never 
to be forgotten. 

Annapolis, Md. 

One fine summer day, a small, dark 
young man stepped across die street for 
a haircut. After receiving a close sum- 
mer crop, he entered the nearest cloth- 
ing store and purchased a complete 
summer outfit — on credit! However, 
he soon found there were certain stipu- 
lations attached : Robbie had a job 
with Uncle Sam ! 

Unlike most of us, Robbie's associa- 
tions with the Naval Academy were of 
long standing before he became a mid- 
shipman. His dad an Academy civil- 
ian employee, it was only natural that 
Robbie should absorb some of the salty 
atmosphere and enter the Academy via 
the Naval Reserve. As is the case with 
most of those young men who come 
from the "West" - side of Annapolis, 
Robbie displays great prowess with Mr. 
Colt's pistols. Only the love of firearms 
has rivaled his one great love, the piano. 
Any day of the week during recreation 
hours, a great musical talent was on dis- 
play in the band room. 




You can hardly blame the little Irish- 
man for exchanging his sweetly smelling 
laboratory for a good breath of salt air 
when he received his appointment after 
his first year at Temple. He also won 
an appointment to West Point. We 
wonder? — but then does he? 

J. P's. elixer for all ills is a weekend

Having in mind future entrance inio 
the Naval Academy, A. D. took his high

sui ( eeded in winning one of the appoint- 
ments available to honor graduates of 
I lonor Military Schools. He had sailed 
considerably before entrance 10 the 
\, adem) and immediately began to use 
the many boats belonging to the acad- 
emy, joined the Boat Club, and sailed 
with the sailing leant. With the advent 
of the new yawls, he qualified and rep- 
resented his company in many successful 
races. At times "Jerry" was quite re- 
served but he always managed to make 
the best of any opportunities lo enjoy 
himself When he was not sailing, he 
could always be found tinkering with 
someone's radio set needing repairs. An 
inherited love of music placed him in 
the choir and orchestra for several years. 
Academics held little trouble for him 
and were disposed of in the most effi- 
cient manner.

"Anything else? Thank you." Those 
words are reminiscent of Jerry's prc- 
navy days of jerking sodas and bopping 
cars, of bouncing pills off the counter to 
ailing unfortunates, of nights in Juarez, 
tequila, dark scnoritas, music, laughter, 
tamales, enchiladas, and midnight rides 
in the silent desert. 

Before he came to the Academy, Mc- 
Guff had already gained a reputation 
as a persistent holder of the floor in any 
"bull test," and, he still allowed no one 
to outdo him. His verbosity, however, 
may serve him in good stead, for he 
hopes someday to write a prize winner. 
Geranimo shuns hops in favor of con- 
certs or movies as a means of entertain- 
ment, and when everyone else is drag- 
ging, he is likely to be found reading, 
scribbling in the margin of the book with 
a stub of a pencil. 

Jerry is not a boxer, nor is he a swim- 
mer ; as a matter of fact, he has never 
settled down to any sport, but he is seen 
occasionally heaving the barbells, keep- 
ing in trim for those inevitable mid-

Over tlie hills and far away— (hat was 
the thought that filled Vern's mind 
when he was a youngster in North Da-

of brighter lights. His life in the fertile 
valleys of California did not obliterate 
his desire to travel, and he spent many

The fact that he comes from the steel 
mill town of Warren, Ohio — where he 
worked before he entered the Academy 
— probably accounts for Ted's prefer- 
ring the more confined quarters of Ban- 
croft Hall to the vast region of fresh air 
in the yard. This fact has resulted in 
much good natured argument and many

popular magazines, and methodically 
absorbing every item in the Post, con- 
stitute his chief amusements. Constant- 
ly imposed upon to drag blind, he can-

but as an easy-going likable fellow, he 
can't turn down a friend in need. Some- 
times, coerced to go out for battalion

ably well on the meet day.

John spent his early years in the fa-

News but did not heed the call to blue

him to the Naval Academy. And 
through the four long years John has 
been a good roommate — always ready

will gamble at the drop of a hat — on 
anything from whether he can throw a 
butt through a two inch crack in the 
window with his left hand to whether it 
will rain tomorrow. In his youngster 
year John finally succumbed to the wiles 
of an Annapolis lass, which combina- 
tion seems to be on the definite side. 
John would have made a good man for 
the Quarterdeck Society as he is argu-

arguments are logical is a matter of 
some conjecture. He was a staunch

the many canoe trips he made in good 
old Michigan, and his year at Case. 
After that year of "Case-hardening," 
Bill found his academics hen- little more 
than a diversion; as a result he not 
only starred, standing one in thai aca- 
demic bugaboo — mathematics, but also 
managed to lend a helping hand to 
our Lucky Bag. 

He was saved from becoming a mere 
mathematician because lie was too much

of a philosopher, and he was saved from 
becoming a mere philosopher because 
he was too much of a mathematician. 
What he did succeed in becoming, how- 
ever, was a charming personality built 
around a lot of self-confidence. There 
is nothing — good or bad — of which he 
doesn't believe himself capable. 

To date only four problems have suc- 
cessfully withstood the onslaught of his 
agile mind — insomnia, absent-minded- 
ness, the sub-squad . . . and women.

Smiling and calm l>ui unmistakably 
alert, John sat in the midst of a group 
of arm-waving, shouting midshipmen. 
Thus il was when WC walked into the 
room. When the loud voices died ,iw.i\ 
from fatigue or lack "I" material, his 
clear voice advanced an opinion based 
on his keen intelligence and vivid imag- 
ination. The crowd was silent, for ii 
always required thinking before they 
could begin again waving their anus 
and shouting after John had spoken. 

Three falls he spent on the football 
manager's staff, but first class yeai lie 
was occupied with the coveted post of 
Goat-keeper. Winter and spring found 
him either in the gym playing handball 
and picking up bits of wrestling, boxing, 
and basketball or out in town gathering 
financial facts for his latest money- 
making scheme. 

Rare is this man whose intellect denies 
his youth and whose strong personality 
denies his high intellect. High stand- 
ing without striving and friends for the 
choosing have been his unusual fori tine.

Rocky Mount, N. C. 

The first day of plebe summer Bill 
said, i" a discussion of the pending 
months of academics, "When they call 
the j oil foui years from now, I'll be 
there." They called that roll four years 
later and Bill did answer "Here." 

Bill came to us from Clemson so mili- 
tary life has always been second nature 
to him, and from (he day he took charge 
and presented the class or 1941 to the 
Regiment until (In- day he answered 
"Here" he has been a leader with many 
friends in all classes. He is a good rebel 
and slill claims that the South lost only 
be< ause they had 10 return to plant an- 
other crop or cotton. His drawl is deep, 
and one need not guess what stale calls 
him a son. His Southern blood becomes 
hot only when he boxes or carries the 
ball an. unci the end, for boxing and 
football arc his favorite sports, and he 
plays to win. We all hope he keeps on 
winning because he has the spirit to go

Have you ever seen a living example 
of a "will to win"? — that's Tommy. 
Where it was acquired we don't know — 
Norfolk, Pensacola, or San Diego. Be- 
ing a navy junior, his homes have been 
many; yet we do know that if spirit, 
ability, and enthusiasm foretell success, 
he will never fail — no matter what the 
game may be. 

Bob has the desire to execute all his 
tasks and duties to the nth degree of per- 
fection. We have found this true in 
both his academic life, where he never 
found the necessity of paying tribute to 
Tccumseh, and in his life at the Acad- 
emy and aboard ship. Never has he 
been satisfied to report an order carried 
out unless he could add "well done." 
When Tommy hurled his first ball 
game for the plebes, the coach quickly 
realized there would be a vacancy for 
him on the varsity nine. Last year Bob 
was held back by a sore arm and a few 
bad breaks, and now early graduation 
has robbed him of an N star.

Salt winds, gray hulls, sea blue — these 
were strange and new ; yet Bill was 
adaptable and he thrived, even away 
from the plains, mountains, horses, dogs, 
hunting, and sweat-on-leather smells of 
Texas. He thrived for his outstanding 
trait was the enjoyment of living and 
that has given him the spark of success. 
To him plebe year was exciting, both 
from the curriculum and extra-curricu- 
lar standpoint ; youngster year became 
not so much a grind as an interesting 
experience ; second and first class years 
were breezes. Bill is a splendid example 
of what good common sense can do. 

His friendliness is spontaneous for 
him, infectious for others. He radiates 
good fellowship, cheer, and hearty co- 
operation. Therefore his friends are 
many. Action, too, is one of his musts ; 
he is never inert. Swimming, basketball, 
football, Lacrosse, golf, tennis — all have 
claimed him. 

Yet through all the intricate passages 
and reverses of his Academy career, he 
has retained his frank sincerity and na- 
turalness ; he is still himself without 
veneer ; that is worthy of a man.

A tall thin man from the South, ol' 
Hoke hails from sunny Florida. He 
never looks up to anyone because his 
height puts him head and shoulders 
above us all. Outside of crew his talents 
do not tend toward athletics, so his en- 
ergy is diverted into channels both social 
and intellectual. A real Southern Gen- 
tleman, Hoke's charming manner 
springs from a heritage of English an- 
cestry and a varied youth spent beneath 
the palms of Cuba and Florida and cli- 
maxed by a final polish acquired at 
Marion Military Institute. He can 
speak with authority on any subject, 
having worked in many capacities dur- 
ing his vacations. As an authority, Ol' 
Hoke holds supreme in two fields ; wom- 
en and social events. 

We all know that in years to come his 
pleasant and charming manners will win 
him many fast friends in the Navy. Be-

ality stands a firm redoubt of profes-

"Lew" is a serious person who ac- 
complishes tilings in a quiet, unosten- 
sible, but thoroughly efficient manner. 
His seriousness makes his not too infre- 
quent bursts of humor all the more en- 
joyable. An all around man "Lew" has 
been successfully an athlete, and a schol- 
ar. Having been of invaluable aid to 
the Battalion football team he then lent 
a hand to the B squad lacrosse team. 
Somewhat of a savior, "Lew" is al- 
ways willing to lend a hand to those in 
trouble. Having a pleasant word for all 
he has made innumerable friends both 
within the academy and on the "out- 
side." Having once decided to become 
an officer, and being already a gentle- 
man, he put everything else aside and 
made a success of it. Never a perfect 
person, he has however, kept out of all 
serious trouble and has made an excel- 
lent record at the Naval Academy. 
From the start he has made, and from 
what we know of "Swede," we are sure 
he will be a good officer, a grand ship- 
mate, and a friend worth having.

Out of the dry country where water 
is only a drink came this man with as- 
pirations for a career on the deep. A 
year's work down at Marion, Alabama, 
was necessary to lower the academic 
bars, and since then plenty of work has 
been needed to remain on the right side 
of the wall — mathematics proved to be 
the big trouble in this particular case. 
Appreciative of the charms of the young 
ladies, but seldom dragging, he was an 
avid hop-goer. Of sports only Lacrosse 
aroused any interest, and between sea- 
sons his idea of exercise was a fast game 
of billiards. Though not a "flag-waver," 
Chuck knew why he was coming to the 
Academy and all the niceties of the 
years here — youngster year, P-Works, 
and can cruises could not cover his orig- 
inal ambition — to graduate and some- 
day have his own command. First Class 
cruise brought the first real introduc- 
tion to an officer's work at sea and con- 
firmed Chuck's original opinion that in 
the Navy .he had found the life and pro- 
fession he wanted.

Miik is a Tennessean through and 
through : he has lived the greatest part 
of his life in Knoxville. 

While he was still called Maurice, his 
in lit <sis turned from the three "r's" to 
parades, uniforms, and Runs. During 
high school he had four years in the 
R. O. T. C. He was a student for two 
years at the University of Tennessee in 
their Civil Engineering school. There 
too, he found much time for military, 
and decided to make a career of it. 
Then he chose Annapolis over West 

His slap on (he back and sharp voice 
are familiar lo most of us. He adapts 
himself well in any situation and makes 
the lust of it; but he is not without 
moods. None can be happier, but none 
can be more gloomy. 

Of course he has changed some since 
we have known him ; he is a little older, 
a little harder, and a little wiser. Nev- 
ertheless, he is a fine gentleman with 
enough of the deep South in him to be 
diplomatic. Mickey will do well any-

Butch hails from Winthrop, Massa- 
chusetts, and seems to be proud of being 
a "damned Yankee." His boyhood was 
marked by his many outdoor activities, 
hunting and fishing being his favorites. 
In high school Bob was a star man in 
academics as well as in track and foot- 
ball. He was always well liked and his 
class selected him as the student most 
likely to succeed. Butch prepared for 
the academy and had little difficulty 
entering. Plebe year "Dago" was a 
nightmare for him but after cross- 
ing that river academics have never 
been of any particular difficulty to him. 
"Grappling" always appealed to him so 
Plebe year he decided to take a fling at 
it and being a "power house" he rapidly 
developed into a first rate Varsity wres- 
tler. In addition Butch is always ready 
for a game of squash or tennis. We 
find him a little stubborn and reserved 
like most New Englanders, but once his 
shell is cracked one finds him an excel- 
lent companion and a true friend.

For two long years Harry spent his 
time in Oklahoma A. & M. learning 

how to become a chemical engineer 

then he decided on the easy way, and 
truly it has been an easy way for him 
because studies are right up his alley. 
Back home in Oklahoma "Simp" was 
quite the man, although he moved about 
considerably he had ample time to de- 
velop his many talents. His inclination 
toward music became evident but didn't 
last long. Athletics have never played 




a very important part in Simp's life, but 
he did play basketball in high school al- 
though he was a trifle small. Even 
though he has grown a bit since, there 
still seems to be too much of that good 
slow Southern blood in him for too ac- 
tive a life, but no one gets more enjoy- 
ment out of a good game of touch than 
Simp. His happy-go-lucky nature, his 
slow soft voice, and his eternal readiness 
for any sort of entertainment make him 
a tireless companion and a good ship-

Any time the fellows wanted a good 
laugh, they gathered around Wink to 
listen to his adventurous tales. In high 
school, Wink's versatility easily made 
him a leader in sports, dramatics, school 
publications and organizations as well 
as academics. 

Technically inclined, he turned to 
matriculation at the University of Illi- 
nois in Mechanical Engineering. His 
determination bore fruits in making his 
first year at college a success in all re- 


spects. Wink always aspired to enter 
the medical profession, but at college he 
diverted his thoughts toward the Naval 
Academy. So the sick were deserted for 
the Blue and Gold, and central Illinois 
went to sea. 

At the Academy, Wink has led a 
rich and enjoyable life. Although he 
was no savoir, he was never troubled by 
academic worries. He will be remem- 
bered by all who knew him for his cheer- 
ful attitude and healthy outlook on life. 
His congenial manner and ability to get 
along with men will mark him as a man 
to be recognized in any walk of life.

Heritage gave Andy inclinations in- 
ward both music and engineering. Ear- 
ly he began nine years of training on the 
piano, violin and the baritone horn, 
the results of which he began to reap in 
high school as a leader in both the or- 
chestra and band. Engineering abil- 
ities also marked his high school career. 

Bucknell University gained a good 
fraternity man in 1936, and the year had 
not progressed far until Andy was pledge 
president at Sigma Chi. Besides a leader 
in music, Bucknell found him to be a 
wrestler and trackman of no little abil- 

From the Academy he will be remem- 
bered for his wrestling, for that com- 
mand of a second class summer com- 
pany, and for that natural friendliness 
that precipitated a crowded room of 
smiling classmates every night after din- 
ner. That likableness, coupled with 
ability and a seriousness expressed when 
he occasionally adapts a sincere tone to 
talk of coveted ambitions mark him as 
one who will stand out. And Andy will !

done. Sandy, and the class owes you a

self that he had gained as much as lu-

manner made him very eongenial but

invaded his academic pursuits and cul- 
tivated in him the habit of warily in- 
spei ting the weekly list ofunsats. < )ften 
among those whose Christmas leave is 
a speculation rather than a certainty, 
"T" nevertheless possesses an uncanny 
ability hi buckle down at moments when 
his liberty is threatened and invariably 
produce the necessary marks. 

On the more accomplished side Tom- 
my is a musician, intrinsically by his 
appreciation and recognition of good 
music ; outwardly when coaxed — by his 
somewhat rusty, but nevertheless melo- 
dious renditions on the flute. His taste 
for civilian clothes, his polished manner, 
and his eye for the really attractive girls 
makes him a true connoisseur.

Big is the word for Bitterman — big 
across the shoulders, big through the 
waist, and confidentially, sometimes just 
a little thick between the cars ... for 
with all the zeal of a Galahad in search 
of the Holy Grail, Frankie has consist- 
ently led his class in the race for anchor 
position. And even though his strength 
has never been the strength of ten, as 
his years on the weak squad will testify, 
any one of his many friends will tell 
you that his heart is pure, and big, too. 

There were two highlights in Frank- 
ie's life before he came to the Academy. 
One was the year that his hometown 
ball club, the Detroit Tigers, won the 
World Series, and the other the year that 
he joined the Navy. 

Life is a song to Frankie. His strong 
tenor can be heard ringing through the 
corridors of Bancroft Hall in loud and 
joyous refrain. And we feel sure that 
just as he sang his way through the 
Academy, so will he continue to sing his 
way through life.

Bob has long been a member of that 
strange and motley crew who would go 
"down to the sea for pleasure — and 
down to hell for pastime." He began 
sailing on the lakes when he was a kid 
in Buffalo and he's been at it ever since. 
For a time his ambition was focused on 
becoming a civil engineer, but after all, 
a "civil" engineer is only a "gentle- 
manly" engineer — and a "gentleman" 
engineer is a naval officer ... so that's 
how he wound up at Annapolis. There's 
something about the handling of a sheet 
in a strong wind that gives a man an 
air of quiet competence, and as we've 
watched Bob as engineer or skipper of 
a ketch, we've always felt that he knew 
exactly what he was doing. According 
to Bob, there isn't much in life that the 
sea hasn't got . . . and we're not so sure 
that we don't agree with him. Bob's 
love of the sea will be an aid to make 
him an officer worthy of any position in 
the service.

"Honey Boy," the pride of Harris-

is not the least bit unusual. But dur- 
ing one Youngster Cruise he met a Nor- 
folk Blonde, who crowded all the rest off 
the map. She made a rather unevent- 
ful life worth living. Everyday at least 
one letter came from Iter, and every 
day Clarence's face would light up. 

His Mom and Dad are looking for 
great big things from him. They saw 
him through high school, prep school, 


an unfortunate plebe year spent in the 
hospital, a turnback, two youngster cruis- 
es, and a tough academic schedule. Now 
he is stepping out with that wide strip 
of gold on his sleeve and they feel amply 
rewarded. Those stripes will multiply, 
if we know our "Honey Boy" right. 

Their "Honey Boy" and our "Honey 
Boy" is the practical down-to-earth 
type. He can argue, be mean — or can 
agree and be nice ; adding up to a regu- 
Im guy. Informal boxing, football, base-

cute little blonde from Norfolk is his life.

From Kansas, in the heart of the mid-

Navy, Emil had a clear conception of 
what he wanted ; an appointment to the 
Naval Academy, and after two years 
with the fleet his ambitions were 
crowned with success. 

Studies have presented little difficulty, 
Bull themes being his pet aversion. 
What Emil lacks in height is made up 
in vitality. His favorite recreation is 
dancing, and seldom has he willingly 
missed a hop. He is an unredeemable 
addict of swing and jazz music and is 
much inclined to be a jitterbug. 

Life in the Navy will never present 
many difficulties for Emil. He definitely 
likes the Navy, and his cheerful and op- 
timistic outlook on life will always be a 
priceless asset. He believes in himself 
and has confidence in his own abilities. 
His open frankness, willing cooperation, 
and easy-going disposition has made Mm 
an ideal roommate and shipmate.

The citizenry of Arkansas Pass, Texas, 
down on the Gulf, looks upon Malcolm 
with esteem ; and rightly so, too, for he 
is endowed with the qualities needed for 
success. He is diligent in work and study 
and active in undertaking and complet-

Malcolm began his naval career at an 
early age. He liked the sea and the 
Navy and decided to direct his course 
toward the Naval Academy. He joined 
the fleet and, after much study, gained 
entrance to the Naval Academy Pre- 
paratory Class. Now after reaching the 
goal of graduation his next goal is Pen- 
sacola and if past performance is any 
indication he will reach it without much 

Although a bit dubious at times M. E.

Washington, D. C. 

Chan is a native of Washington, D. O, 
where he first distinguished himself as a 
Boy Scout and later as an honor high 
school student. His summers were spent 
in New England as an active camper, 
mountain climber, and country gentle- 
man. After prep school C. C. entered 
the Academy with the first group of 
candidates in the class of 1941. 

Since then Chan has stayed among 
the best of the class in academics, and, 
in spite of his stars, in popularity also. 


Rowing, tennis, and sailing have en- 
gaged his attention in sports, and he has 
been active in German, Mandolin, and 
Boat clubs. 

Chan's outstanding characteristic is 
his quick wittedness. His intellectual 
curiosity is notable. C. C. will not ac- 
cept any doubtful statement without 
checking it up in a dictionary, and if 
he reads about some strange port he 
looks it up immediately in an atlas. 

Chan's amiable disposition and re- 
liable character will make him a wel- 
come addition anywhere.

Although he was born in California, 
J. T. soon moved East to Cambridge, 
Massachusetts. The Navy was in his 
blood, and after a year at Harvard, he 
joined Uncle Sam's select group at An- 
napolis, leaving that certain Harvard 
accent for his twin brother. Fortu- 
nately, his former school seems to have 
had no ill effects on him. 

Blond, easy-going, J. T. didn't set the 
world on fire. Sailing was his favorite 
diversion and Ins favorite sport. Much 
spare time was spent with his camera 
and photography. Glee-clubbing also 
claimed his interest, and he participated 
in numerous musical productions. He 
was another of the lucky ones who were 
not bothered with girls, as he let them 
more or less alone. While not quite a 
star man, J. T. was far from being a 
bucket. A "tree" now and then just 
lent spice to life. 

Maybe J. T. won't get his (lag over- 
night, but if plugging, persistent effort 
combined with a sincere love of the 
Service means anything, why — someday 
he'll get eight side boys and four ruffles.

There is something about those smil- 
ing Irisli eyes thai one can'l exactly dc- 
scribe. It is quite hard to conceive any- 
one so taciturnly smooth and good na- 
tured, so even tempered and likable. 
"Spud" never lias a dull moment for he 
possesses originality and tact to enter- 
tain himself and acquire an air of self 
reliance. No one has more faith in 
himself than "Spud," for "Spud" is al- 
ways right. Reading good books is his 
best hobby, while munching some of 
thai good Nebraska chow of which he 
has a never ceasing supply. "There is 
nothing like good Irish chow," "Spud" 
says, "the way they make it in Nebras- 
ka." And so with an Irish cookie in 
one hand and the Irish or Nebraska Hat; 
in the other he raves madly on. The 
Strong silent type are usually "Red 
Mikes" but not "Spud" : for hardly ever 
is he stagging in at Dahlgren. "Spud" 
has all the requisites for getting along, 
in any group or crowd, and some day 
we're going to see him on top.

We cannot but wonder what goes on 
beneath that quiet exterior that "Butch" 
displays for us so much of the time. 
That serene German countenance hides 
a number of sharp contrasts. To quote 
his favorite axiom, "A man must be 
completely relaxed in order to think 
properly." That describes "Butch." Of 
course, it must be known that "Butch" 
believes that the only place to find this 
relaxation is in a good bunk drill. How- 
ever, he is as much at home in the gym 
— either exercising with weights, or box- 
ing. Just as he enjoys thinking, and the 
art of bunk drill, he likes to build his 
body and increase the bulging biceps. 
With all of this is a very good nature, 
and a quiet humor. "Butch" must cer- 
tainly be classed as one of that group 
who get ahead in this world through 
their own ceaseless efforts, arriving at 
the goal, whether it be connected with 
flying in the Navy or raising chickens in 
the Cornhusker State, not in one short 
jump, but in a steady pull.

If little bombshells of efficiency start 
popping around you it is probably Gra- 
ham busying himself in one way or an- 
other. The wiry little crew coxwain is 
extremely industrious. His flighty ac- 
tivity and restless haste prove quite dis- 
concerting to most of us. 

The Navy is indeed fortunate in hav- 
ing Lee a midshipman because at vari- 
ous times before his appointment he 
seriously considered becoming Astron- 
omer, Chemist, Archeologist, and Phys- 
icist to mention just a few ambitions. 
It was probably during his two years 
at the University of California that Lee 
contemplated these dreams of the future 
that were destined to remain dreams. 
His attachment to U. of C. remains 
so strong to this day that parades are 
spoiled for him wdien the band recklessly 
plays Stanford's old battle song : "Come 
join the Band." 

The Naval Academy has taken a firm 
hold of Lee's affections for years to come. 
Memories and fast friendships formed 
here will not soon be forgotten. 

Yes, Lee is a remarkable person.

When more colorful and descriptive 
(if somewhat lurid) epithets are in- 
vented, Nagle will invent them. De- 
spite all his efforts, Paul's gleaming 
dome gives mute and striking evidence 
of the able brain and quick wit behind 

Perhaps some reason for his expres- 
siveness may be found in the life he led 
before entering the Academy. After at- 
tending St. John High School in that 
very, very dry state of Kansas, he spent 
some time at prep school in New York. 
Rumor has it that the roof and walls of 
Marian Institute in Alabama are still 
shaking from the effects of his year there. 
The Naval Academy next received 
Paul's attention, and, as many of us can 
testify, he has certainly livened its aus- 
terity. An "in-and-outer" as athletics 
go (he's either just "in" or just "out" 
of his bunk) he has managed to develop 
no mean ability in handball. Paul as-

Weymouth, Mass. 

From up staid old Boston way via 
Weymouth High School and Randle's 
Prep School came Randall Boyd to 
grace the portals of Bancroft Hall and 
to bless his roommates with an enter- 
taining and profitable companionship. 
Fundamental to - the - point ideas and 
opinions, well couched in Randall's own 
vivid, glowing, living language, accom- 
panied by appropriate gestures seldom 
fail to have full effect on his listeners. 

Except for extending himself suffici- 
ently to qualify as an expert with the 
pistol, Randall's only athletic activity 
was confined to turning records. 

Randall is the "boy who cried wolf" 
with respect to comments on academic 
work including examinations. As a re- 
sult of this trait of self-depreciation, all 
those who might come into contact with 
Randall will have to apply the "Boyd" 
constant in order to arrive at a true es- 
timate of his capacities and abilities.

Muncie, Ind. 

Although Charlie hails from "The 
Typical Midwestern City" — Muncie, 
Indiana — he soon proved to us that 
there was little typical or ordinary about 
his character. First, being a cornet 
player of unusual ability, he soon be- 
came a member of the NA-io, finally 
becoming first trumpet. And already 
during plebe year he was playing var- 
sity soccer and basketball. 

During the first year or two he found 
little interest in women, but he sur- 
rendered his claim to the cherished title 
of "Red Mike," retaining only a few re- 
bellious sentiments — like his favorite ex- 
pression concerning insurance ... "I 
intend to take out only enough insur- 
ance to defray burial expenses and to 
buy my widow a washing machine." 

An integral part of Charlie's person- 
ality is his excellent taste for the best in 
music and literature — a taste which is 
reflected both in his proficiency with the 
cornet and in his cultured speech.

Our "Gene" began as a delivery boy,

wearing the robes of Chief Justice. But 
Gene's future was, in reality, undecided

entered a Junior College, and in a short 
time Annapolis bound. By the end 
nl plebe summer he was well indoctri- 
nated with the purpose of the Naval 
Academy, and he determined to stick 
ii out. 

Cheerful, industrious, always ready 
for work or play, he has been an asset 
as a "wife," and will be one as an offi- 
cer. The majority of his weekends are 
spent dragging and alter that long, 
gruelling, victorious battle with the

found in the gym taking a heavy work-

"Zed's" first job was with the "Brad- 
ford Era" delivering the home town 
paper. His ambitions to enter the Na- 
val Academy began "way back there" 
and, because of his easy going ways, 
there were many who doubted that our 
newsboy would make the grade. He 
did make the grade, however, and it 
was all on his own. He stayed out of 
school a week to "bone" for the en- 
trance exams and that is all there was 
to it. 

The girls did not mean a thing to 
Joe when he was in high school, and 
even at the Academy he was the red- 
dest of Red Mikes. In fact you could 
count on your thumb the number of 
times he dragged Youngster year and 
approximately an equal number of 
times second class year. 

When we look back on "Birddog's" 
years at the Academy, we won't see him 
on the athletic field, laboring on a part 
in the Masqueraders, or working on the 
Log, but we will see him filling his bunk

As to sports, he has never made the

him boxing in the gym or out on the

sport used to be one of touch and go 
with the academic department, but aft-

On a cold writer day in February, 
igi8, Raymond Vincent Welch dis- 
covered America in a small town in up- 
state New York. For some, that was 
the most important discovery since 1492. 
Just as Columbus has been claimed by 
various cities and countries, Ray had 
been claimed by many places, people, 
and institutions. Geographically, Pan- 
ama has the strongest claim on Ray, 
though California and New 7 York have 


legitimate claims too. Those tales he 
has told of life in a sail boat around 
Panama made that place most interest- 

It was on a hot summer day in June, 
1937, that Ray joined us. Since then 
many people and activities have claimed 
him. The wrestling loft has claimed 
much time. As a result of that, the 
hospital claimed him for several weeks. 
We have often wondered if it was his 
trick elbow or the nurses. After all 
these claims we ask— "To whom does 
Ray belong?" That question was an- 
swered on that hot day in 1937.

His main ambition is to have as few 
worries as possible. He works and plays 
hard, but worries about neither them 
nor for the future. 

Sports are Bill's main hobby. It is a 
Withrow tradition to play baseball. He 
earned his letters in this and in basket- 
ball while in high school and college and 
has continued playing here. Being cap- 
tain of the sub-squad was only a minor 
part of his sports program. He is also 
nearly an authority on the players and 
history of well known and not well 
known athletic teams of the United 
States and especially those of the South. 
We like Bill for his friendliness, cheer-

cause he is a grand Fellow.

If we could have trekked across the 
hills of West Virginia some half a dozen 
years ago, we'd have found one of the 
state's best high school athletes playing 
All-State football, good basketball, and 
pitching a bang-up game of baseball as 
well. Since he began his Academy life, 
though, a chronic knee injury has forced 
him to give up all his sports except base- 
ball, which is and always has been his 
big love. Even his love for beautiful 
women, which he'll never admit is all 
in any one direction, can not exceed his 
devotion to the game. 

The biggest thing about "Schnozz" is 
his effervescent personality. We can't 
remember more than once that anyone 
ever had him stopped without a last 
word for him to put in, and it's a known 
fact you can't beat old "Schnozz" in

He is the perpetually bronzed, rug-

At present it looks as though he were

Several times we thought that Jake 
might not be with us much longer, but 
he always managed to burn the old oil

his love of a heaving deck and salt air 
and his all around likability, Jake should 
prove to be a very welcome addition to

no sophistication can be implied and

Out of the cold North of far away up- 
per New York State there wandered 
down Annapolis way a lad whose de- 
lightful smile and genial personality 
have gained him many a lasting friend. 
John has spent a good deal of his time 
upholding the merits of his home town, 
particularly a retaliation to some an- 
noying Kentucky Kernals, but has man- 
aged to make a name for himself in our 
maze of academics and extra-curricular 
activities, with perhaps more emphasis 


on the latter. Freckle-faced Davy, al- 
though he is resentful of being reminded 
of his sparse smattering, is well known at 
the crew house, and the mighty cox- 
swain came into prominence at Pough- 
keepsie last year by his furious bailing 
which kept the shell afloat. 

In John we have observed with in- 
terest and no little amusement that in- 
evitable transition from innocence to a 
certain amount of worldly maturity. 
There's plenty of devilment and joking 
present which often comes into strong 
evidence. His good nature is as always

starring in soccer, playing golf, or start- 
ing a squash team. It is amazing that 
along with this he combines a prodigi- 
ous amount of social activity. 

Only after having visited his home 
can one know all Bill's attributes. Hos- 
pitality, charm, and a love of beauty are 
inherent in "Willie." Moreover, a love 
of the out-of-doors and all sports keep 
him in shape. 

In the future Bill is bound to succeed,

personality that overcomes all difficul- 
ties and warms his most ardent enemy.

In spite of having attended the same

Tony became a varsity member of the

he could muster was spent in entertain-

Life on the farm is the source of many 
of his most pleasant memories. Tony's 
gun, an old double-barrel long Tom, 
with outside hammers, has knocked 
down many a dove and quail in the 
fields and woods of Kentucky. He will 
probably be using that same gun, when, 
as a retired admiral, he returns to the 
Kentucky blue grass to live.

He lias been called the One-eighty 
man, not because he is a particularly 
fast man at that distance, but because 
he is usually one hundred and eighty de- 
grees out of phase with everyone else - 
for instance, wearing a cap when the 
uniform is hats. 

The love bug hadn't bitten "Butch" 
before he came to the Academy. His 
first leave started the ball rolling and 
since then there have been at least ten 
lights of his life. A lot of time that 
should have gone to academics has gone 
to wrestling, swimming, doing vertical 
stoopfalls, and searching for knowledge 
of the Navy. Those workouts in his 
room must have given him plenty of 
confidence in his physical prowess who

Pud was indeed lost when he found 
himself in the colonial atmosphere of 
Annapolis, for it was a complete change 
from his home in the big city on the 
banks of the Hudson. 

McGath graduated from high school 
with the desire to become a business 
man. After punching a time clock on 
the •_> 7 1 h Boor for over a year, however, 
he decided that his education should be 
extended. With the guidance of a red 
headed midshipman friend, he bought 
a one way ticket and settled down to 
gel this education and to make more 
friends. The Brooklyn twang was soft- 
ened by the influence of several room-

for some reason his love for the service 
has waned. George had the misfortune 
to spend a good part of his first plebe 
year in the hospital, and the final exam 
in steam disastrously resulted in another 
plebe year. In high school he had 
played stellar roles in the dramatic pro- 
ductions and poured out his overflowing 
vocabulary in debating. He even went 
out for high school track, but since com-

his six feet one inch of athletic prowess 
in the form of recreational sleeping, with 
occasional swimming and tennis to al- 
leviate the boredom. 

Mac showed distinctly "red mike"

Way back when Jerry was a mere lad 
in rompers, he began tinkering with 
mechanical gadgets. That early begin- 
ning gave him a fine background for 
his future career in the Navy. From 
the practical side of mechanics he ad- 
vanced to the more rugged life of a ranch 
hand. This solitary existence, however, 
was too far from the glamour of a big

to begin a series of odd jobs that began 
as a florist's helper and ended in Port-

It was a bright summer day in July

As for girls, Bill likes them all : he is

make SO many right decisions in the past

An unrest born of desire for the high- 
er things in life led "Mac" forth from 
his position as a clerk in Birmingham, 
Alabama, to the calling that has claimed 
us all — the U. S. Navy. From two 
years cruising in the broad Pacific he 
came to the Naval Academy with many 
friends, and since that sultry summer in 
'37 he has acquired many more. 

"Art" has been characterized, not 
by the roar he made in passing, but 
more so by the consistent effort he has 
always put forth and the numerous re- 
sults he has attained especially in the 
cultural field. 

We all knew that the snares of the 
"system" would eventually catch "Mac" 
as they do all midshipmen, but it was 
an interesting contest between him and 
the "Powers that be" up until the mid- 
dle of second class year when a very 
small infraction spoiled that all too per- 
fect record. 

His greatest virtues are a dependable 
good humor despite the rough going now 
and then and the ability to accomplish 
things with a minimum of "lost motion."

Rod's career has been as interesting 
as it has been varied. From juggling 
canned beans in a small grocery store 
to wrestling with a tractor in one of 
Florida's many orange groves, then to 
the less strenuous job as a movie usher 
and the occupation of drawing suds in 
a beer garden, and finally to manage- 
ment of a restaurant. After he realized 
that some form of higher education is 
necessary in this world, he studied at 


jeuu-i: a 


Florida Southern College with a scholar- 
ship and then, following two valuable 
as well as enjoyable years on the cam- 
pus, the great inspiration came, and 
finally the fulfillment — Annapolis. 

Rod is ambitious. All one need do 
to discover the source of his inspiration 
is to open his locker door where six 
square feet of photographs of the same 
girl smile forth. Some day we expect 
to see great deeds done by Rod. His 
analytical mind, his natural aptitude, 
and a wealth of feminine inspiration 
have insured his success. Rod's easy 
going nature and constant good humor 
have gained him many friends.

John is typically Irish from the top

he can talk you into almost anything. 
Unexcelled in "shooting the bull," he 
presides at most of the sessions.

as the few bad. His family occupies a

have and his mother is swell — and can 
she cook! And John sometimes drags

ter doesn't arrive.

Sometime in Bobby's life he acquired 
a craving for the best of everything. If 
he is buying a golf bag, he wants the 
best. If he is shining his shoes that too 
must be done in the best way. 

Coupled with this craving is an ad- 
mirable willingness to work hard and 
do well. This trait was probably ac- 
quired through military training of 
which he had his share at Kemper. 

His life is not at all dull for "Moon- 
beam" plays as ardently as he works. 
His theory of thorough relaxation over 
the weekend leaves him zealous to cope 
with the next week's work. 

He drags frequently but not consist- 
ently. Although he does not openly ad- 
mit it, he is faithful to a hometown "One 
and only." 

For a shipmate who will give his all 
for you as well as with you, who is cap- 
able of keen enjoyment as well as hard 
work "Bobby" is hard to beat. 

To make the most of his good qual- 
ities there is only one thing that Bobby 
demands. That is absolute silence be- 
fore breakfast.

success of this quest. But his greatest

ever, the goal he sought most earnestly 
was the hardest for him to attain. Al- 
ways a little below par on the eyes, he

was far-sighted. Math, too, presented

Milwaukee, Wi: 

Take a good portion of a tough, fast, 
football man, another portion of music 
lover, and mix well with the most non- 
ces attitude of the Regiment and you 
have Ace. Ace has always had the knack 
of unconsciously outwitting the D. O. 
that we all wish we could have had at

was the justifiable offense of taking food 
into the messhall. 

Unusual it is to have such a non-reg 
attitude and a love of sports combined 
with such a broad knowledge of music, 
classical as well as modern. Ace's room 
is frequented by music lovers, for whom 
Ace has a fine collection of records, 
cither popular or classical. A good

The "Little Black One" hails from 
Bend, Oregon, where he acquired his 
love for the great outdoors. Most of the 
spare time in his early years was spent 
in one of his three favorite pastimes : 
fishing, skiing, and mountain climbing. 
Even now he can't pass a steep hill with- 
out wanting to climb to the top of it. 
The winning of a scholarship to Whit- 
man College started him on the rough 
road to higher learning. After a year 
at college he joined the Navy. "Arrow" 
was on board the U. S. S. New Mexico 
when he took his entrance examinations. 

The chief diversions of the "Leetle 
One" here at the Academy have been 
track and sleeping, with the emphasis 
on the sleeping. Between siestas you'll 
find him ready for a bull session on al- 
most any subject. In spite of the little 
time he finds for studying he has man- 
aged to stay in the upper brackets of 
the class. With his past experience and 
his present ambition he should be able 
to step into his place in the Navy.

cooking as a naval career, he looked to

Young Lochinvar came out of the

East in time to acquire three year's pol-

ton, D. C. His father is in the Coast 
Guard, but he chose to follow his brother 
into the Navy. 

Tommy's personality is an interesting 
mixture. Equipped with an excellent 
brain, he is loath to study. Equipped 
with an athlete's body, he dabbles in- 
differently at sports, never exerting him- 
self enough to excel in any one of them. 
His tastes in music are sharply defined — 
if it's a waltz it's good, if not it's worth- 
less. Tommy's best girl is his mother, 
and he certainly lets her know it. His 
hobby of photography affords him rare 
experiences. A carefree attitude and 
genial nature have made living with him 
a pleasure. 

That's Tommy in words — I hope you

Rockville Center, N. Y. 

Everyone who has come into contact 
with him knows who the "Saroci of 
Rockville" is. Pete, as he is known to 
his friends, is a quiet fellow, little given 
to conversation or to the familiar "bull 
sessions." He doesn't even boast about 
his academic prowess ; but his excellent 
grades, as well as his ability to answer 
any question on any topic, are better 
proof than anything he could say. 

Yes, to look at his academic record 
one might readily picture Pete as the 
ever-working scholar. A glance at his 
list of extra-curricular activities, how- 
ever, presents a different picture. Sail- 
ing during the fall and tumbling during 
the winter, and frequent hiking through 
the Severn Woods ; these are his chief 
recreational interests. 

Whatever he does, he makes certain 
that it's done well. He is always care- 
ful and thorough, and despite the stiff 
pace at the Academy Pete's life contin- 
ues at an unhurried tempo.

"Where's Paul?" I'm asked. "Well," 
say I, "he might be any of a dozen 
places— class meeting, hop committee 
meeting, on the athletic field, or even 
walking extra duty." For Backus is a 
busy man. 

Paul is a typical sailor man. Wander- 
lust led him from Valley Forge Military 
Academy to Columbia to Rutgers, and 
finally to the Naval Academy. He im- 
mediately set about making a name for 
himself in athletics and class politics. 
Two years apiece of baseball and foot- 
ball have shown that Paul is no mean

After Hutch entered the Academy, it 
was months before even his closest 
friends found out that he was a Navy 
Junior. This was not because lie tried 
to hide the fact, far from it, but because 
of his friendly and unassuming manner. 

Throughout his schooling, Hutch has 
been very successful in his studies wind- 
ing up as valedictorian in high school 
and standing two in the presidential 
"Compets" for the Academy. His out- 
put in ergs was small but his class stand- 


ing — well, he has stars on his collar. 

Having spent quite a few years of his 
life in California, Hutch picked up and 
became "pretty hot" at two of sunny{?) 
California's favorite sports — swimming 
and tennis. Our subject, however, is too 
inclined to relax to take either of these 
sports seriously enough to try out for 
the varsity. 

Being one of those affable gents who 
can get along with the most tempera- 
mental of individuals, Ronnie has lots 
of honest-to-goodness friends and that 
speaks well of any man.

Akron, Ohio 

Born in Singapore, Jerry was a shell- 
back at the tender age of two. In his 
home of Akron, Ohio, Vic was president 
of his high school senior class ; but poli- 
tics were subordinated to his love and 
natural ability for sports. At high school 
and at prep school his ability at wres- 
tling, football, lacrosse was outstanding. 

Vic's decision to come to the Naval 
Academy was sudden and definite. He 
wasted no time but vigorously sought 
an appointment, studied hard and 
passed his entrance exams. That is one 
of Blandin's characteristics — he makes 
up his mind with no delay, then acts 
positively and without hesitation. 

His classmates will never forget him 
for his willing aid when there was diffi- 
cult letter-writing to be done. He'll be 
remembered as a past master at that 
gentle art. Since finishing Second Class 
Bull course, Vic has been searching for 
the "universal truth."

Idahoan by birth, Rosie was brought 
up in the aura and traditions of the 
Golden West. An excellent skier, ardent 
huntsman, and an accomplished horse-

Rye, N. Y. 

Tommy came to the Academy from 
Rye, New York, and immediately be- 
came one of the most popular members 
of '41. A natural prowess for athletics 
gave him the edge on those less favored 
in the field of football, baseball, and 
basketball — to the tune of N-star, N- 
star, and numerals, respectively. 

The original smoothie, Tom frequents 
the hops, usually stag. His main in- 
terest is in New York in the summer and 
Miami in the winter. That may be the 



reason Tom comes back from Christ- 
mas leave with a berry-brown tan. 
Tommy is good-natured and mild-man- 
nered : he doesn't mind being referred 
to by various appellations — like 
"Blunt," "Blont," "Blotz," or even 
"Blatz." However, we have yet to find 
the sports announcer who can properly 
say, "Blount made that run." Ord- 
nance profs, too, seem to have trouble 
handling the monicker. How often 
have we seen Tommy squirm when 
Count Vronsky said, "Mr. Blunth, you 
want to get that word 'factor' in there. 

Elizabeth, N.J. 

John came from his home town in 
New Jersey and China via prep schools 
in New York and Annapolis. When we 
first encountered him, lasting impres- 
sions were caused by his possession of a 
certain worldly wiseness and an evident 
artistic temperament. Raving one min- 
ute, laughing the next, serious the third, 
he is the true "artiste." 

His water colors, done as the mood 
strikes him, are ample proof of a great 
talent which places him in the realm of 
the temperamental artist. An ardent 
lover of music, his tastes range from 
Sihelvus' composition of "Finlandia" to 
Barnet's rendition of "Cherokee." In 
picking his passage along the path of 
academics, John found a few difficulties, 
but surmounted them by virtue of his 
saving sense of humor plus an inherent 
common sense. He could have easily 
starred — if it had not been for Cosmo, 
Redbook, Colliers, Esquire, and academics. 
Athletically, our hero badmintonned, 
boxed, held beautiful hands (also 
bridge), and made those amazing paint-

Hollywood, Calif. 

From the sunny shores of California 
came this embryo Farragut, Dick 
Wright. He came with enthusiasm, for 
before he was ten years old he had set- 
tled down to the ambition of becoming 
an admiral. 

We shall remember him as a prolific 
debater; his glory was the symposium. 
A romantic soul, Dick always preferred 
dreaming to studying— and wore his 
stars in his eyes instead of on his collar. 
His hobbies are music, horses, and fly- 

A promising career for him in boxing 
and football was shortened by an acci- 
dent on youngster cruise. He was qual- 
ified both as a rifle and a pistol expert. 

He goes for "this military stuff" ; with 
years of it in the R. (). T. C, C. M. 
T. C, E. R. C, and finally the regular 
U. S. Army. 

With the ambition and the ability to 
someday fly the four stars, Dick will al-

Mac was born in the Nutmeg State, 
and spent his early years in the beauti- 
ful Connecticut Valley. His first burn- 
ing ambition was to sail around the 
world on a tramp steamer, then settle 
down up North as a Mountie! All was 
altered, however, when he realized that 
the Academy would be well worth seek- 

This easy-going lad has limited his 
spare time to battalion sports, a little 
dragging now and then, sailing, and 
hopeful letter writing. For the past 
score of years he has been trying to out- 
do his Dad in trout fishing ; but Mac 
Sr. still is teaching him how. The Scot 
has the very commendable trait of mak- 
ing the best of all situations. His philos- 
ophy : "Life is wonderful." 

Mac's ambitions are, after receiving 
his commission, to win his wings at 
Pensacola ; to marry a girl, who can 
cook well ; and to celebrate New Year's 
Eve, 1999-2000, with THE girl on their 
New England homestead. This is a big 
oicler to fill ; but Mac can do it.

TlFTON, Ga. 

"Oh, boy, this is the Best time of day!" 
Such is Jack's comment as he settles in- 
to the bunk for the night, and when 
eight hours later the bells ring in the 
morning. Then he props his feet up on 
the desk and reads his beloved news- 
paper, until a moment before formation. 
It's hard to say which he likes best, 
sleeping or reading the paperl 

In Tifton, Georgia, Jack has unlim- 
ited credit, his climb from paper boy to 
a well paying position in the circulation 
end of his local newspaper. He had 
attended prep school and a year of col- 
lege at Marion Institute before entering 
the Academy with the class of '40. He 
came back to '41 because of a long sick- 
ness with appendicitis. 

"King" is one of the strong, silent va- 
riety from the deep South. He is silent 
because he is serious — serious about the 
Service and about life. His ambition 
is really to go places in Uncle Sam's 
Navy. He's no star, but no slouch — 
he's the laziest go-gitter in captivity!

Although Bill calls Black Friars his 
home, he has spent most of his years in 
moving first to one Marine base and 
then to another. His early ambition 
was to follow in his father's footsteps in 
the Marines; and although that is still 
his ambition, it looks as if the Navy will 
claim him. An eye for color and a flare 
for taking excellent pictures sums up his 
ability as the photographic staff of the 
1941 Lucky Bag. In high school, Mac 
distinguished himself as an athlete ; here 
he has specialized more in his hobbies 
and extra-curricular activities. When 
Mac was at odds with the Academic 
Departments, we could always find him 
steadying himself in pursuit of his favor- 
ite hobby of making model ships. 

In Mac's temperament we do not find 
anything outstanding. Rather, he seems 
to be the steady, hardworking, thorough 
type of person ; a consistent student. 
Hard work, rather than flashes of bril- 
liance, has carried him successfully 
through the academic course.

Who said "Cotton-top"? Well, he is 
a bit white on the uppermost extremity, 
but that's probably from being "fetched 
up" among the plantation fields of Ala- 
bama, where the sun whitens anyone's 
hair. Quent was exposed to a high 
school education at Sidney Lanier, and 
finished off with two years at Georgia 
Tech before raising his right hand that 
sent him along the same track his four 
older brothers had followed. 

Usually located?— just bidding six no 
trump, doubled, redoubled, and vulner- 
able. No! No! He did not go down 
four — it was only three. His favorite 
ambitions? First probably is to win a 
pair of golden wings at Pensacola, but 
there are others — as Paris again with 
champagne ; Copenhagen with pastry 
and strawberries ; 363 days leave in one 
year; or to hunt all day every day. 

Fairer sex? Well, let's skip that part 
— it's too involved. This is the end — 
here's hoping he wins his wings, draws 
thirteen spades in one hand, and starts 
for Paris, all in the same day.

Pat or Pete, to those who knew him

various reasons best known to himself, 
he has always called Montgomery, Ala-

easily say, however, that Pat is from no- 
where and everywhere, for lie had an 
Army background and then turned righl 
around and entered the- Naval Academy 
through the Meet. The reason for such 
unprecedented conduct was that ever 
since his dreamy Lanier high school 
days, Pat had fondly cherished the am- 
bition of earning and wearing the cov- 
eted wings of a naval aviator. 

His colorful personality is well illus- 
trated by his favorite pastimes of sun 

bathing, building "die body beautiful," 
driving fast automobiles last, and doing 
his best to drive his roommate crazy 
with his buzzer-blinker set. His natural 
independence, cheerfulness, and pro- 
found and sincere sympathy for the un-

John is a gentleman of the old South ; 
his accent would never lead you to be- 
lieve he came all the way from Louisi- 
ana, but the gentleman part is obvious 
to all. He left Lake Charles for An-

from high school, bringing with him a 
taste for classical music, and an ambi- 
tion to waltz some day with the girl of 
his dreams, all alone in a great, shining 

Although he does very well in the 
technical subjects, John's main love cen- 
ters in Bull and Dago, and for him one 
of the mysteries of life is why the system 
assigned them such low multiples. He 
goes so far as to profess an inner longing 
to teach one of those subjects some day ; 
so if in some future year you are renew- 
ing acquaintances about the Yard, don't 
be surprised to see him with the gleam 
in his eye that means only one thing — 
"Draw slips and man the boards!"

When Norm was at the advanced age 
of eleven, he bought his first trumpet 
with money which he had earned from 
a paper route. This apparent inclina- 
tion toward music proved to be more 
than a passing fancy. Several years 
later, he was participating in operettas 
at his high school and playing in various 
local dance orchestras. 

An honor school appointment to the

made a decided change in Norm's fu- 
ture. But the change did not affect his 
interest in music, as his leadership of the 
NA-10 shows. His favorite sport is bas- 
ketball, in which he has turned in good 
performances. What astonishes all of 
us is that one man, and not a very big 
one at that, can possess so much energy. 
If you can imagine someone with a 
keen sense of humor and yet, at the same 
time, moody, a musician and an athlete 
combined, a Red Mike who is at times 
a Snake — why, that's Norm.

There is evidently something to this 
talk about "Sunny California." Brad 
seems to have acquired from it a calm 
and level disposition that is so rare. It 
may have been the sight of ships shov- 
ing off out there that gave him his am- 
bition to travel. Until he came to the 
Academy, Reno was Brad's frontier to 
the East. But he did not join the Navy 
to see the world. He was a member of 



the California Scholarship Society, and 
justly so too, for he won his appoint- 
ment via the Naval Reserve examina- 

Brad is deliberate in all he docs ; will- 
ingly he sacrifices time in order to be 
right. His keen appreciation of fine 
things is evident in his enjoyment of 
good literature and classical music. 

One can often find him in the swim- 
ming pool in the afternoons or on the 
tennis courts. According to Brad, the 
weather in Maryland is never right ; he 
insists the Academy should be moved 
to the West Coast. A true California

When "D" gets around to it, which 
will be in the very distant future, he is 
going to bring suit against one of our 
leading movie companies. He claims 
that he was lured into this institution 
by the happy life portrayed on the sil- 
ver screen. The call of the sea brought 
Wats from the leading city of southwest 
Georgia — Colquitt. At times he seems 
quiet, but on the cruises he always was 
very much alive, as will be remembered 
from the parties in Paris and Caracas. 

Don has never been known to worry 
about anything. Youngster year aca- 
demics threatened a little, but with an 
almost unnoticcable burst of speed he 
left them far behind for good. Ath- 
letics have never had a great attraction 
for Don, but he has become most pro- 
ficient in all types of indoor sports dur- 
ing the stay here. Whenever you need 
a fourth at bridge or a bowling partner, 
give him a buzz because he's just the 
man you want — if you can get him away 
from his bunk drill or ever present mag- 
azine story.

Boston, Mass. 

Al, known to his friends as "High 
Pockets," "Pop," Shorty," etc., hails 
from Boston, the home of baked beans, 
broad "A's", and the intelligentsia. 
Way back in high school Al began try- 
ing to get into the Academy. Luck was 
against him for several years, during 
which' time he entered the Naval Re- 
serves at the Air Base at Squantum. 
Out of high school, Al set to work, first 
with the State Highway Department 
and later in the Navy Yard at Boston. 
While he was there he attended night 
classes at Boston College. Finally, he 
passed his entrance examinations to the 
Academy and has been a leader in his 
class ever since. 

Al is particularly fond of week-end 
hikes through the countryside. During 
the week, he can be found working out

Mars was a working man before he 
entered the Academy. He mixed with

Company. It was in a department

glibness with which he announces the

Mars looks quiet and business-like, 
but he is a match for anyone's antics or 
puns. His avocation is collecting pieces 
of string, boxes, buttons, gadgets, or 
anything that "might come in handy 
someday." When he was faced with 
the company officer's ultimatum that 
all boxes must go, he was momentarily 
stunned. He is always doing something 
— for one thing he can turn out letters 
faster than a foreign propaganda ma- 

On the athletic field one will find 
Mars snagging flies for the baseball 
team or running in headlong pursuit of 
a soccer ball.

Warren [ot better known to his close 
friends, "Hutch"), came in us with all 
tin- loyalties of .1 true Southerner, de- 
vout in his beliefs, sincere in his ideals, 
and proud "I his heritage. He spent his 
boyhood as man)- of 11s did camping, 
hunting, making a name for himsell in 
local and college athletics, and looking 
for an occasional flame from amongst 
the beauties that live hidden away in 
the Kentucky hills. At the Naval Acad- 
emy his quiet and easy going manner, 
his kindness, and his consideration for 
others have made him a highly appre- 
ciated friend and roommate and a con- 
stantly sought-after companion. His 
keen mind has put him up in the top 

flight ranking among those famous 4th 
Battalion bridge aces. Musi of his lei- 
sure time has been contributed to sports : 
his lanky frame enabled him to become 
an almost infallible pass rei eiver, even 
though we'll never let him forget that 
50-yard one he dropped on the line. 
But misfortune v. ill never bother Hutch, 
for Ins days are too lull for that.

Pelham, N. Y. 

Dinty's early life was free from worry 
and cue. His prized possession was an 
English Setter that followed him faith- 
fully over the gentle hills of Westchester. 
Sailing became his greatest love after he 
was introduced to the facination of the 
"frost bites' 1 of Long Island Sound, and 
the tears of experience which have fol- 
lowed have left him a finished sailor and 
a practical seaman. 

The Naval Reserve gave Dinty his ap- 
pointment to the Academy. Since his 


entrance he has turned his attention 
principally to athletics, and adopting a 
totally new sport, he developed into a 
Varsity Lacrosse player. If his eyes will 
only prove to be as able as his body, he 
has decided that the Air Corps is the 
place for him. However, obstacles nev- 
er bothered Dave too much and he will 
be equally successful in almost anything 
he decides to do. His good disposition 
can not be more satisfactorily proved. 
He has lived in harmony and peace with 
the same hard-headed wife for three and 
one half long wintered years.

"Sound off, mister." "Midshipman 
Moiphy, fourth class, sir." "Where are 
you from, mister?" "From de South, 
sir, South Joisey." These words her- 
alded Pat's entrance into the Navy. Not 
only Pat was sworn in but a keen sports- 
man, a refreshing humorist, and, above 
all, a friend. Walt's lively interest and 
participation in Navy's major sports 
have earned him a flock of friends. His 
rhythmic Fred Astaire routine gives rise 
to no small wonderment as to why he 
refused Ziegfeld's offer. When not out 
for football, baseball, or wrestling — eat 
ing occupies most of his spare time. 
The canteen never counted it a suc- 
cessful day unless "Rhythm" has been 
around at least twice. The trees would 
have a negligible crop if they had to de- 
pend on the "Murphy, W. P." yield. 
His genial and humorous nature has 
palpitated the hearts of many a fair

filled with laughter, and riches of un- 
derstanding—what more could a room- 
mate ask.

Marlboro, Mass. 

Ken doesn't have to say much before 
one is sure that he is from Massachu- 
setts. When lie left his "garden spot of 
the world," he brought with him the 
"Boston bean hop" which made plcbe 
year's dancing lessons superfluous. It 
is seldom that lie has missed a hop. 
Ken's joy was realized when second 
class year came and with it a radio that 
had but two adjustments — off and "full 
blast." It is not unusual to see him 
leaning back in a chair, smoking a big 
cigar, and listening to a hot swing band. 
He is always ready to take it when the 
tables are reversed. He has constantly 
been two jumps ahead of the academics, 
and his lone Exec department entangle- 
ment of note resulted in a one week 
cruise on the Reina for the hideous crime 
of smoking before breakfast. Although 
he likes to picture himself as hard on 
the plebes, his good humor, thoughtful- 
ness, and happy manner make him pop- 
ular with all classes. He's more than a 
pal — he's a real friend.

Watkins Glen, N. Y. 

George came to the Navy from Wat- 
kins Glen, New York, and has since been 
trying to make the Navy come to him. 
While aboard the Richmond in San Diego, 
he turned his talents to signalling, study- 
ing, and making liberty boats. Al- 
though he became most proficient at the 
latter, his studies led him finally to the 
Naval Academy. 

From the outset, his career as a mid- 
shipman was destined to become out- 
standing. His love of bull sessions, 
which his sea stories invariably domi- 
nate, and his genius for remarking the 
unusual, have made him a place in 41's 
hall of fame. He will long be remem- 
bered as the man who had a classmate's 
coat altered radically to fit himself. 

George is a football player, music 
lover, humorist, and out-and-out Snake. 
He hasn't missed a hop since Youngster 

Other than a few minor run-ins with 
the academic departments, most of his 
troubles have resulted from his continu- 
ous but fruitless struggle to make the 
system fit his ideas.

Oxnard, Calif. 

Scott hails from the eighth wonder of 
the world — that amazing state of sun- 
shine and orange groves — and that does- 
n't mean Florida. Oxnard was the lo- 
cale for his earlier endeavors, where 
dramatics and the presidency of his 
senior class occupied his time. First 
taste of the sea came from the sea scouts 
— Scotty reached the rank of Eagle, then 
retired as an honorary member. Turn- 
ing down an appointment to West Point, 
he enlisted in the Navy and three years 
of fleet duty on the U. S. S. Lexington 
gave him a fine foundation for the prac- 
tical side of the Academy. 

From plebe to first classman, Scott 
has not lost that cool, unexcited, omnis- 
cient air — completely unruffled no mat- 
ter what turns up. Outside formations 
on cold days were his pet aversion, drag- 
ging his favorite extra-curricular activ- 
ity, baseball his favored mode of putting 
out ergs. Unpretentiius, sincere and 
sympathetic, Scotty will always be "one 
of the boys."

Little Rock, Ark. 

The closest Adam had been to the sea 
before he entered the Naval Academy 
was in a leaky, flat-bottomed rowboat 
on the Arkansas River ; so it is quite un- 
derstandable why he didn't acquire his 
sea legs until first class cruise. That 
three month's jaunt in the Atlantic and 
Caribbean last summer qualified Rollo 
as a real salt water man, a qualification 
which will probably remain valid until 
he sees duty on a destroyer when he may 
again be afflicted with that dreaded 
midwestern disease — mal de mer. 

Adam received his pre-Annapolis 
physical brace at Marion Institute and 
his mental brace at Little Rock Junior 
College. With this background, wheth- 
er or not he would have starred had he 
not boned Cosmo is hard to say because 
he didn't indulge in that pastime. In- 
stead the midnight oil was burned oc- 
casionally to excellent advantage. 

We'll all remember his tact and even 
temper and above all we'll never forget 
his friendly smile.

Evanston, III. 

When Bob entered the Academy in 
the summer of 1937, he already had five 
years of military training; so this phase 
of the Naval life presented no new prob- 
lems for him. As for academics, he was 
provided with a substantial background 
of two college years, but his happy-go- 
lucky nature administered little aid to 
this fine foundation. He possessed the 
ability to excel, but was satisfied with 
an average mark. 

Bloat enjoyed all sports. Much of his 
time the first three years was spent on 
the football squad as a guard. It was 
in B Squad Lacrosse, however, that he 
was outstanding. During recreation 
hours, holidays, or on the cruises he 
could always be found with a small 
group of his friends, Earl, Milkey, and 
the Barkeep, and as Bob greatly appre- 
ciated music, his best friends will still 
admit that his favorite tune was the 
"Beer Barrel Polka." 

Because of his ever present good na- 
ture, manliness, determination to follow 
his own convictions, and his charming 
wit and humor, he should succeed.

Fortunately, it was not long after 
graduation from high school that Char- 
lie decided to forsake printing for a 
career in the Fleet. The sea-going en- 
vironment of his home "down Cape Cod 
way" had an important bearing on his 
choice. Time proved the decision to be 
a happy one. After two years in the 
Fleet, he turned in his holystone and 
drew instead a slipstick and an armful 
of books at the Midshipman's Store. 
A keen, discerning brain has enabled 
Charlie to excel in academics with a 
minimum of effort. In addition, a 
strain of inventive genius came to light 
in the midst of Second Class Ordnance. 
It would not surprise us if his name 
should become attached to something 
besides his commission. 

Charlie is not averse to hard work 
and has a knack of getting things done 
expediently. Restless by nature, he 
longs to get back to the Fleet. An in- 
veterate realist, he knows what he wants 
and how to get it. He has Ins eye on 
Navy wings at Pensacola.

Defiance, Ohio 

As a civilian John enjoyed himself by 
driving his "gang" around in his "model 
A." But his hours spent in fishing upon 
the Auglaize River in Ohio gave him a 
yearning lor the sea. Having graduated 
from high school in Defiance, he en- 
listed in the Navy to come to the Naval 
Academy- With one day's sea duty in 
six months of enlisted life Swee'pea's 
climb to the top began. 

Here, John has shown great interest 
in cross country, the sub-squad, and 
"lime Magazine. His name is in gold 
over in the Bull Department as the win- 
ner of one of the annual Current Events 

A big husky fellow, John's pet weak- 
ness is food. He is quite allergic to

his exacting standards. So Pensacola is 
his ambition. 

Basically Swee'pea is a "Red Mike," 
but his attendance .it social functions, 
always in the company of a member of 
the fairer sex, proves his appreciation of 
the finer things of life.

Popeye came here from a lieutenant- 
colonelcy at G. M. A. He had a few 
stiff battles for 2.5's, but leave usually 
found him on his way to Atlanta. The 
regulation concerning vehicles has re- 
sulted in hiding his great talent for fast 
bicycling. (Though it's a secret, there 
are medals to prove that!) At the Acad- 
emy wrestling early took Popeye's in- 
terest and held it. When unavoidable 
difficulties hindered varsity work, he 
gave the battalion team five regular 
points every meet. 

At home he treated his wife to the 
pleasant aroma of rum and maple in his 
pipe. The convenience of his chair to 
his bunk brought out a weakness for 
securing. The plebes all took their 
troubles to Popeye — and forgot them to 
the music of his pickup.

rights of man ; and he has a deep con-

If there is excitement, Ed is in the 
middle of it. He invaded the Academy 
like a storm, and there has been a storm

been wrestling. Because of his friendli-

We hope to be around when he falls, 
for it will be an event we've all been

are his two weaknesses, and he always

one hand, and his interest in eating and 
sleeping leaves no place for women in 
his life. Those puns of his require some 
lime for thought and a certain amount 
of energy replenishment. 

His professional interest lies in ma- 
chinery. To date he has not failed to 
take anything that came his way apart 
just to see what made it run. He likes 
to think that he is pretty good at getting 
it back together again. Watch for him, 
walking alone at a breakneck pace in 
some foreign port, or in his home town 
whistling to himself.

Roger, even though he was transplanted

was a sore one but did not effect him 
enough to dampen our many hilarious 
study hours. His violent mistreatment 
of studies was not "sacri-studious" be- 
cause of his natural brilliance and his 
philosophy that one must taste often 01 
the pleasures of life in order not to forget 
how to enjoy them. One of his impor- 
tant pleasures was lying in bed usually 
preceded by an almost morbid propen- 
sity for sloth and procrastination which 
he could never fight off. His energy 
when exhibited, was ruthlessly used up- 
on sailing, the radio club, football, and 
giving out the dope on the pari-mutuels. 
His mania for electrical switches utterly 
covered our room with them. We never 
knew what they would turn on or off un- 
til the pudding was tasted, but it af- 
forded a marvelous outlet for his ener- 
gies. All in all he was a swell boy for a 
roommate and he'll always be a perfect 
friend even in need.

That first time we saw Cliff during 
plebe summer was truly an amusing 
sight There lie was, attired in new

for his two hundred pound, six-foot-one

"I'h. ii is Kiki Lenz," the answer, 
"a big back from the coal mines of west- 
mi Pennsylvania." At this description 
we conceived him to be a slow-witted,

how wrong wc were. 

People are attracted to Kiki by his 
jovial, good fellow altitude, but his sin-

the best compliment wc can pay Cliff 
is to say that he immediately dismissed 
from his mind any petty quarrel or mis- 
understanding. What incidents will we

rich bass voice and his cutting the paper

Good old Moose— six feet three inches 
of good naturedness. A pair of broad

ior noticed his son's salty prowess, and 
brass buttons followed after graduation 
from Forest Park High School. 

Biggest problem confronting Moose at 
USNA was sleeping at the proper time. 
You'd always find him turned in right 
after dinner, and despite time checks 
from liis roommate every five minutes, 
he'd still be pounding the pillow at taps

that didn't weaken his spirit — he came 
on anyway. Plebe year he earned stars 
and academics offered no troubles. He 
thought once or twice the eye exam 
might get him ; so he began prepping 
for the final test by staying away from 
movies first class cruise. 

Costy took great interest in the Log's 
advertising staff and exam weeks would 
find him turning out business letter's 
while others were boning. Besides man- 
aging the lacrosse team he played bat- 
talion soccer and was vice president of

opened. Ever outstanding have been

In a riotous bull session or on horse-

lengthy discussions of his Arabian stal- 
lion in the Southwest. Pete, the sub- 
ject of continuous abuse and blasting, 
is easy prey for quick-witted slander — 
having accumulated during four years 
such regimentally famous titles as "Bon-

Having a yen for the classics in music, 
his room is strewn with records. Mis-

can be found, madly throwing things 
and screaming "Lost five dollars — sure 
I threw it here!" 

Hotchkiss-schooled, Pierre has an ex- 
cellent background, finds academics 
easy by applying little more than native

part of his energy galloping around the

of laundry bags around his neck, and a

leisurely Southern life of Booneville, 
Mississippi. Prepared for Navy life by 
Columbia Military Academy, he had 
military aspirations, but was thrust in 
the thankless post of platoon guide, 
where he contented himself by singing 
Dixie and giving rebel yells at infantry. 

Johnny fought his way through plebe 
steam, but since has found academics 
more pleasant. He has been an invet- 
erate Snake, furnishing many hops with 
lovely ladies. 

His Academy accomplishments were 
in B-squad football, plebe tennis, indoor 
rifle, and the Ring Committee. Johnny 
really enjoyed the cruises. Water was 
scarce in Paris, but Johnny bought his

combining Naval life with fine saddle

The cruise had its moments for Vance 
— some of them big ones. He'll never 
forget Paris. Guess he learned a little 
aboard ship, but he beat the system by 
spending many days in Sick Bay. 

Vance was the battalion hero young- 
ster year when he won the baseball 
championship by knocking a home run 
in the ninth to win by one run. 

Invisible hands forced Vance to for- 
sake the books and hit the hay. Well, 
we've had our arguments, but it has 
been four years of fun with it all, and 
I'll remember it always — early taps, 
fights with Pete, and together trying to 
beat the system. AMEN.

Ocean City, Md. 

From Ocean City, Maryland, to An- 
napolis — with various detours — is the 
trip Mike took coming to the Academy. 
His high school days were spent in 
Ocean City, where he made a name for 
himself as a baseball player. Time off 
from school was occupied in deep sea 
fishing during the summer and duck 
shooting during the winter. After Mike 
graduated from high school he was 
urged to join the Navy to try for an ap- 
pointment to the Naval Academy. He 
went to Norfolk first — then to San Di- 
ego, where he played the part of strong 
arm man for the fo'c'sle divisions on the 
USS Cincinnati. At the Naval Acad- 
emy Prep Class in Norfolk, Mike studied 
for the exams, and July 8, 1937 found 
him a member of the class of 1941. 
Burpo's main interest in sports is foot- 
ball, but he can always take time out 
for a swim. Mike's most likable trait 
is an ability to get along with everyone. 
Following graduation, Mike has his eye 
on a pair of wings after a Pensacola

A firm believer in "the hard way is 
the best way," Jack relinquished his po- 
sition as quartermaster striker on the 
U. S. S. New Mexico to become a mem- 
ber of the class of '41 . No sooner had 
the first year started than he began to 
render aid to those in the academic mire, 
which resulted in saving many of them 
from a meeting with the Academic 
Board. When the new yawls came to 
the Academy, he became nautically in- 
clined. During a steam drill one after- 


noon Jack studied for the exam and be- 
came a senior member of the Boat Club. 
Performances in numerous races estab- 
lished his reputation as a sailor. 

After a year on the cross country 
team, he decided to limit his athletics 
to workouts in the gym. Seldom does 
an afternoon pass without his appear- 
ance in the weight loft or on the wres- 
tling mat. 

Long will be remembered his cheer- 
ful smile, his magnetic personality, and 
the friendships he has established at the 
Academy and in civilian life.

He can be noticed anywhere, even in 
a crowd, by his walk, which he de- 
veloped at West Virginia University. 
He always looks a little sleepy and usu- 
ally is. Life at the Naval Academy has 
changed Ben very little, except to make 
him work harder on Dago. His wit 
lies in his hilarious manner of telling a 
story. He is well-balanced physically 
and mentally, never extreme. After 
taking a whack at most of the outdoor 
sports, he settled down to an indoor 
one, Bull Sessioning, as his favorite. 
Well, maybe he did get a "block '41," 
but he really spent most of the time 
resting it on the sunny side of the bleach- 
ers. He hated "Plebe tea fights" but 
made a pretty good showing at all the 
hops. His best dragging is done on 
leave when he can wrap himself up in 
a natty tux and step on the gas. Doc 
can get a laugh out of any kind of a 
situation. We all appreciate his sense 
of humor in a life that certainly needs it.

Four years have gone by, but they

ideals. Unchanged, too, are such char- 
acteristics as a constant "mislaying" of 
gloves, cap, or fountain pen, and a con- 
sistent habit of spending his March pay

sits, running his hand through his s[i>u Iv

Vic's consistent avowal of the super- 
Iative merits of Kansas speaks well for 
the Sunflower Stale, for he has been no 
mean traveler. That travel must have 
had ils educational effect for Vic routed 
the academics in ihe opening skirmish 
with an ease which has left them at his 
mercy. His willingness to use his aca- 
demic ability in helping less gifted class- 
man s undoubtedly saved him from their 
ire dining second-class year when their 
little escapades unfailingly appeared in 
print. The truth is that when politics, 
reporting and even tennis failed to di- 
vert him, Vic just had 10 turn to a bit 
of salty biography. 

Dragging with Vic has been the ex-

Paterson, N. J. 

It is said that "God helps those who 
help themselves." Leon stands as an 
example of this maxim, for he entered 
the Academy from the Navy without 
enjoying the benefit of prep school 
training. Since entering he has easily 
maintained a good academic average, 
not through intensive study alone, but 
by a keen, instinctive analysis of the 
matter at hand. 

His academic work, however, does 
not prevent him from having a great in- 
terest in athletics — particularly wres- 
tling, swimming, and gym. This flare 
for sports, in spite of his frequent so- 
journs to the hospital for repairs, can 
perhaps be traced to a youthful emula- 
tion of Tarzan. 

In his gentler moments Leon can be 
found reading some classic by Tolstoy 
or Dostoevski, or a book on his hobby, 
mesmerism. He frequently entertains 
the battalion with his soulful crooning 
or with some music from his violin. A 
very versatile person, this son of World 
War Paris.

Crash, slam, bang! But before the last 
echo of his "blitzkrieg" jive, a la light

A hoosier Hot Shot from Indiana's tini-

ways with a vehemence. Perhaps that 
is why he is one of the leather-slingingest 
lightweights that ever put on the gloves 
for Navy, as well as one of the most en- 
ergetic dancers that invade Dahlgren 

Another Bud lurks, however, under 
that effervescent exterior — a contradic- 
tion to the madcap devil of no cares : a 
Bud entranced by the beauty of Tschai- 
kowsky and Franck, a Bud who harkens 
to Balzac, Tolstoy, and Maugham. It 
is this Bud you see in the evening twi-

Carterville, III. 

Richard, a son of Illinois, is a worthy 
representative of that state. He lived 
his early days in Southern Illinois where 
he attended Carterville High and spent 
two years at Southern Illinois Normal 
University. His academic record shows 
that he is a brilliant student for he stood 
one in his class at both schools. He 
probably would have been a successful 
professor at some college if a Congres- 
sional appointment to the Naval Acad- 
emy had not turned his career in that 
direction. Dick, having lived so near 
the Mississippi, has always had an ad- 
miration for boats, rivers, and the sea. 

Dick loves nature ; he has spent many 
hours of his youth scouting with his 
friends and admiring Nature while he 
fished on the banks of a creek. 

Dick is a hard worker; he takes his 
work seriously and never ceases until he 
has done a good job. He always has a 
cheery greeting for everyone. His sin- 
cerity and good humor make him a 
cherished roommate. His ability, com- 
bined with his nature, will make his 
career one to be admired.

Louisville, Ga. 

Moffat is a true Southern gentleman. 
He comes from Georgia, and is proud 
to be from that state with all of its heri- 
tage of the Old South. Red has quite 
a lot to remember from his pre-midship- 
man days. He attended high school at 
Louisville Academy, where he was quite 
an athlete, specializing in swimming and 
tennis. He had a year of college at 
Georgia Tech, and he would probably 
be on the way to being a successful en- 
gineer now had not an appointment 
steered his course to the Naval Academy 
and the career which had been his boy- 
hood ambition. He liked making boats 
and testing them in trips down the Ogee- 
chee River. He likes nature and the 
out-of-doors, and is quite fascinated by 
Indian lore ; he had spent many hours 
at his hobby of collecting Indian relics. 
In a like manner, the Navy's strong ap- 
peal to him lies in its promise of a life 
in the open at sea. 

His easy-going congeniality makes 
Red an ideal roommate and an endur- 
ing friend.

Huntington, W. Va. 

Hob first got his sea legs as a member 
of the Sea Scouts back in the hills of 
Huntington, West Virginia. From the 
very beginning of Plebe "ac" year he 
showed the academic departments that 
lie was a man to be reckoned with. The 
end of Plebe year found him wearing 
stars. Both Youngster and Second Class 
years he just missed starring chiefly be- 
cause bad eyes forced him to cut down 
on the studying. 

Hob was always able to find lime for 
extra-curricular activities. Plebe year 
he look an active part in the Musical 
Club shows, and as a senior member of 
the Boat Club, he enjoyed many week- 
end ketch trips. He was Circulation 
Manager of Reef Points. In sports 
Bob concentrated on Lacrosse, being a 
member of the Plebe squad and B squad. 
Quite a bit of his spare time, particularly 
on weekends, was spent in Dahlgren 
Hall enjoying the hops. He very seldom 

All in all four years with Bob have

Richmond, Va. 

He is not the flashy type, but after 
close association, one realizes that there 
is something decidedly appealing about 
him. He very rarely asserts his phi- 
losophy of" life, but he has one which 
stands him in extremely good stead. 
His definite ideas on the Navy were 
formed long before he came to the 
Academy because he worked hard to get 

After he entered he varied his endeav- 
ors with several extra-curricular activ- 
ities. As far as studying is concerned, 
he was about average ; as for playing, he 
did his share. The Boat Club was his 
big interest, and he could command a 
ketch well. Being Business Manager of 
Reef Points kept him pretty busy most 
of Second Class Year. The side horse 
on the gym team and dragging took care 
of the rest of his leisure hours. 

As for his disposition and congenial- 
ity, all that need be said is that four 
mote years as his roommate would be 
a pleasant assignment. 

Baltimore, Md. 

If you want something done, see 
Broke. Radio fixing, extra instruction 
in almost anything but Dago, and above 
all, fooling the eye chart by squinting. 
Perhaps Brake's fondest memories at the 
Academy are ketch trips filled with in- 
cidents he alone can best relate. They 
are really good : so get him in a corner 
sometime (you gals). His athletic prow- 
esses include cross country (for we used 
to chase him) gym, a la horse, and a 
super game of lacrosse. I doubt if there 


was a man at the Academy who was run 
more by his roommates than Broke. But 
he could dish it out as well as take it, for 
congenial Broke always had a ready re- 
mark to back up his usual calm self. 
The plebes' friend (?) too, for of 800 
plebes, 799 knew Broke — or rather Mr.

For four years the football gridiron has

missed his calling, for when it comes to 
bartering or bargaining, he is right 
there. In a party or a group Earl can 
always be found as the center of attrac-

himself thoroughly whenever a little 
time for relaxation appears. Second

many an overcrowded and rushed trip 
to Washington and back. In spite of

Boston, Mass. 

Boston gave the Naval Academy "Jig 
George" and, with his "better to give 
than to receive" policy, gave l'Ecole 
Navalc a quiet, unassuming, fun-loving 
four years of life. Jack brought with 
him a love of the sea, common to most 
good Bostonians, and he has mothered 
it along with numerous ketch trips, star 
boat ventures, and quiet sailing in 
knockabouts and halfraters on the Sev- 

A real home loving sort, Jack rarely 
ventures outside the grim gray walls of 
the Academy except when it's an ab- 
solute necessity. So he finds lots of time 
for tennis, golf, squash, swimming, the 
Boat Club, and letter writing. Books 
require very little attention from tins 

Seldom given over to boundless en- 
thusiasm Jack means what he says, and 
anyone receiving his praise is worthy of 
it. He possesses the characteristic New 
England shrewdness, ruggedness, and 
inner warmth. Four years with "Jig 
George" have shown us a real classmate 
and a true friend.

To hear Jack tell of it, his name in 
the old days should have been the "Da- 
kota Axe Man," but he's reformed now 
and no one need longer fear his tend- 
ency in that direction. If diversity of 
interests means anything, Jack has a lot 
on the ball — and facts bear this out. 
His interests are varied, ranging from 
books to handy work, but his strong suit 
is technical work. Sketching, machin- 
ery, thermodynamics, electricity, or nav- 
igation — take your choice, Jack can get 
them and gets them well. He is re- 
served, sincere, determined, and capa- 
ble ; but don't be fooled by his reserve — 
his sense of humor is a humdinger. His 
greatest hobby, and the one he enjoys 
most is cabinet making. There's a 
gleam that comes into his eyes when 
he's wielding a tool that makes him look 
like an ad personifying contentment and 
relaxation. If he ever gets out of hand, 
just give him a gentle reminder of his 
axe-throwing days, or better still, his 
arson days, and he'll soon return to his 
normal self. 

New York, N. Y. 

If you see a little fellow breeze into 
your room with a pipe in his mouth and 
a smile on his face, that's Jo Jo. He 
may start talking about New York, the 
one and only city in the world, or 
Macy's, but usually he gets going on 
one of those sea stories that every salt 
likes to hear and tell. 

Jo Jo has a trait which is very con- 
venient for his roommate. Regardless 
of how scarce chow may be among the 
youngsters and plebes, he can always 
find a piece of cake or a couple of cook- 
ies for a forenoon lunch. 

Joe's struggles with the math depart- 
ment were hairbreadth to say the least, 
but he finally emerged the victor. On 
the other hand, he was quite a dago 
savior and always lent a helping hand 
to anyone less fortunate than he. With 
this spirit of cooperation and his in- 
tense love of the sea, he is bound to 
make a naval officer that any skipper 
will be proud to have aboard his ship. 


Washington, D. C. 

Though scion of a long line of West 
Pointers, the lure of ships and the sea 
proved too much for Bill ; so he broke 
with the Army and joined the Navy. 
Being an Army brat, his pre-Academy 
travels included most of the Army posts 
in the East and Middle West and Pan- 
ama. It was in Panama, while watch- 
ing ships of the fleet passing back and 
forth through the Canal, that Bill first 
came into close contact with the Navy. 
And, ever since, things pertaining to the 
sea : sailboats, ship models, and sea 
stories, have been his chief interest. 
However studies may pile up, he is al- 
ways able to find time to sail when the 
boats are in the water and there is a 
good breeze. No Red Mike, Bill drags 
an outstanding selection of femmes, 
mostly fellow Army brats. Bill's chief 
ambition is to become an aviator, but 
subs rate high with him too. Ship de- 
sign also intrigues him. No matter 
which field he chooses, we know he will 
be successful and well liked.

If you want to learn the intrigue of

illuminating style he can tell you of such 
things as earthquakes in Japan and ty-

Only once has George been a little 
upset — and it wasn't the time he found 
himself with three drags during second

London while a guest of the Duchess of 
Gloucester at a polo match, a kindly lit- 
tle man in civilian clothes made friends 
with him. Cicero was very familiar 
with the gentleman until he was intro- 
duced as Admiral of the Fleet Sir Roger 
Keyes, Commander in Chief of the 
British Navy! 

George's savoir faire has extended to 
the problem of maintaining a creditable 
class standing while keeping three com- 
plete albums, reading widely, working 
in the Trident Society and Stamp Club, 
and continually entertaining a host of 
good friends. 

Whitesburg, Ky. 

Arch is a quiet, dark haired, rosy 
cheeked, young man from Whitesburg, 
in the mountains of Kentucky. As a po- 
litical appointment to the Naval Acad- 
emy was not available after graduation 
from high school, he enlisted in the Navy 
in order to try it from another angle. 

Boot Camp at the Great Lakes Naval 
Station, Communications School at San 
Diego, the U. S. S. Arizona, a cruise on 
the Texas, and battered white sides of 
the Reina Mercedes gave Arch a varied 
picture of the Navy before he was faced 
with the hardest duty of his young 
career, Plebe Summer. 

His interests are those of an average 
young man. He likes to dance and is 
seen at most of the hops. And along 
with the dancing goes a love for music, 
both swing and classical. But to really 
know Arch you should ask him to go 
fishing. It is his favorite sport. 

Arch gives you the impression of quiet 
forcefulness. In him ambition is com- 
bined with determination. The effect 
has been steady progress.

Monticello, Ark. 

As the smoke pours forth from that 
Arkansas corncob Hank concocts his 
favorite pipedream — ship a thousand 
miles at sea, no gals, and no studies, just 
peace and solitude. 

When we first came here we found 
that Hank was one of those fortunates 
from the fleet who knew more about 
the Navy than most of us. Ask him 
about the "Quincy" and a gleam will 
come into his eye as he begins telling 
you a tall story about those wonderful 
days. And as for the women — Hank 
was one of those outstanding Red Mikes 
of the class. It was not until the end 
of Second Class year that he began to 
weaken. At that time a dark eyed beau- 
ty from the Southland led him from his 
chosen manly path. It is rumored that 
her culinary skill was most powerful in 
her campaign. 

With academics Hank usually waged 
a bitter struggle — it would seem that the 
other side was winning, but he was often 
tried and never found wanting. May it 
ever be thus.

Loup City, Nebr. 

Where the Loup River winds devi- 
ously through the parched corn fields 
of Nebraska lies Loup City (pop. 1,640), 
noted because it gave the Navy Bob 
Mathew. Bob left the home town golf 
course, theatre, beer parlor, and the cro- 
quet court on the front lawn to become 
a midshipman, and from his perpetual 
smile evidently enjoys the new life. That 
smile is set in the middle of a round face, 
giving the fitting nickname "Moon." 

Moon always manages to stand lower 


in the class than many of the collision 
cases, and he's been on the wrong side 
of the fence with the Executive Depart- 
ment on numerous occasions, too, but 
you will not find a man with fewer ene- 
mies. That happy smile and the voice 
tinged constantly with laughter make 
you love him even if he's playing a prank 
on you. 

Bob did New York all alone on his first 
visit second class summer, and that ven- 
ture alone provides him stories to laugh 
over which, combined with many other 
escapades, will make him a jolly com- 
panion in any wardroom.

It's hard to write this piece — to tell 
the things you've learned about Dick in 
four years and to please him in doing it. 
Moon started wrong but truthfully when 
he said Dick was born 500 years late ; 
he only means Dick is an incurable 
romantic. Perhaps his beloved books 
have made him wish for more than 
gray-walled, winter days, but at least he 
has done something about it, and re- 
sulting adventures mark him as most 
individual of midshipmen. 

His best hours were spent swimming 
in Eastport with Grabbo, practicing 
holds on Andy Ball, waiting to be back 
in the hills of Pennsylvania. What will 
his roommate remember best? It's in 
those best of minutes in a long day when, 
ready for bed, he opens all windows 
wide in an already freezing room, and 
by the dim glow of the table light he 
takes his last fond look in the mirror 
and, with a flex of his Adonislike shoul- 
ders, says, "I'm tremendous."

Little Falls, N. Y. 

Allan's outstanding, broad-shouldered 
physique, further accentuated by his 
spindles, which he insists are his drivers, 
made him quickly a class character. 
Unusually good-humored for a strong 
man, big and easy Basie has long been 
choice running material for all who are 
not frightened by his missing fang. The 
Spider is renowned as 41's chief gun- 

Naturally reluctant to extend itself, 
Allan's mind is slow but comprehend- 
ing, often surprisingly shrewd. An in- 
dividual thinker, he has read far and 

But there is another Allan. For be- 
neath this rough, seemingly indifferent 
exterior there is a lad longing for the 
beauty and peace of his beloved Mo- 
hawk Valley. Perhaps not too long 
hence, quiet Little Falls will find Allan, 
slightly vaster of girth, returned to the 
haven of his youth, who with foaming 
Utica Club and gnarled corncob close at 
hand, "sits quiet-handed in the fading 
light, ere night."

What is the first thing we notice about 
Steve? It's his famous smile. It wins 
for him friends, gals, and extra points 
at the gym meets. Perhaps his smile is 
the reflection of all the Florida sunshine 
he has imbibed, for it was in sunny, 
carefree Florida that he spent his early 
days. In addition to the usual boys 
jobs of selling papers and working in a 
grocery store, he also handled one of 
his father's laundry trucks. He was 
destined to take over his dad's string of 




laundries, but Steve fooled Dame For- 
tune by coming to the Naval Academy 
instead. Though his favorite sport in 
those days was swimming, a natural one 
for a "Gator," he already had a liking 
for gym. On home-built apparatus, he 
went merrily swinging. Now, he is still 
swinging on the rings of the gym. He. 
tries his best to swing on the dance floor 
too, but just can't manage it. Instead, 
he casts spells over his partners with a 
constant cheery chatter and that afore- 
mentioned smile.

Philadelphia, Pa. 

Only a few of his classmates would 
recognize the rather impressive name, 
Clyde Collamore Elmes, Jr., because he 
is known to almost everyone as "Joe." 
As the story goes, the title "Joe" dates 
back to the time when "Joe Bush" was 
the mighty Philadelphia pitching star 
and C. C.'s particular idol during his 
baseball-minded days. Since then his 
interest has shifted to boxing, crew, and 
— uh — canoes on Spa Creek. 

Joe spent all his pre-Navy days in and 
around Philadelphia and is never quite 
in his element until he is back among 
the bright lights. He is a confirmed 
"big-city" man, but none the less, re- 
gards his country friends from the South 
with a benevolent tolerance that reflects 
his Yankee broadmindedness. Smooth, 
bland, and affable, entirely urban, he 
wears clothes well and smokes a pipe 
with distinction. 

But under his debonair finish Joe 
hides an enthusiastic appreciation of the 
joys of life; he is particularly fond of 
music and dancing.

Port Arthur, Texas 

Ski came into the world in 1918 ; born 
of wealthy parents he scorned their 
financial aid, worked his way through 
high school and two years of college ac- 
cording to the general line of chatter. 
You will have to take his word for that 
bit of information gleaned from a rich 
foamy froth of chatter. He has a strong 
build and a pair of broad shoulders that 
don't come from tossing cream puffs 
around ; so there must be something in 
the story of wrestling with cases of that 
Good Gulf lube oil. An impartial ob- 
server would note that he called a halt 
lo this work mania of his on entering the 
Academy, or at least within fifteen min- 
utes after stenciling his last suit of white 
works. The result, however, has been 
the storing of a vast amount of energy, 
small bits of which he expends in week 
long spasmodic attempts to star each 
quartet. The rest of the time is spent 
in easy conversation in which his broad 
"a" constantly belies his native Lone 
Star Slate —that is, if he is awake.

Key West, Fla. 

"Looie" claims Florida as his home 
state by virtue of the fact that that is 
where he makes his home on leave. 
Any number of states could claim him, 
for he has lived in a great many of them. 
No, he's not a Navy Junior— he is an 
Army "brat." He never starred in aca- 
demics, but the reason is not his reading 
Cosmo, for Cosmo is seldom found on 
his book shelf. It might be said that 
he is endowed with a "practical, rather 
than academic" mind. 

One of his absorbing hobbies is tink- 
ering. At the expense of a clock and 
some other miscellaneous equipment, 
he has developed some very scientific 
gadgets— such as a device to cut off a 
radio at taps. It would be idle talk to 
try to predict Looie's future in the Navy, 
but we can say that he is a classmate we 
will always be glad to meet in the fleet. 


After a year at Brown, in Providence 
Rhode Island, Bob gave up collegiate 
life to come to the Academy. With 
difficulty he tolerates Southern customs 
and the cold Maryland weather find- 
ing the latter more severe than that en- 
countered at home. Despite the con- 
stant influence of a variety of accents 
he doggedly retains his broad "a's." 
Another pride and joy is his collection 
of pipes ; he has at least one from each 
country visited on the cruises. Each 
pipe has its tale, which he is glad to re- 
late if you have the time. 

The circulation department of the 
Log found in Bob a very capable man. 
Quiet and efficient, aided by a ready 
sense of humor, he handled all requests 
and complaints. 

In sports, he favors soccer, lacrosse, 
and squash. The Fourth Battalion 
teams can always count on him to be 
in there fighting for them. 

Somehow he finds time to write home 
three times a week without fail. Such 
punctuality, tempered with an easy- 
going nature, will serve him well in life. 
A good Navy man.

Washington, D. C. 

In the true Navy Junior fashion, Mon- 
ty learned his ABC's in Panama, his 
arithmetic in San Pedro, and his geom- 
etry in Washington, D. C. But, varied 
as his education has been, it has been 
good ; for he whiles away exam week 
reading novels. Studies are not the only 
things that come easy to this chap. Half 
the year he plays soccer, the other half 
he is over in Thompson Stadium doing 
the 440. When he is not running, he is 
busy taping up a teammate's leg with a 
finesse that makes even the corpsmen 
envious. As a member of the ring com- 
mittee, Monty had a lot to do with the 
success of our class ring. He seems to 
take all these things in stride with un- 
ruffled calm and a good humor. He 
finds relaxation on the decks of the yawls 
and at those Saturday night affairs in 
Dahlgren Hall. He rarely misses a hop, 
and it is not the punch bowl that at- 
tracts him eidier. 

We like him best for his infinite pa- 
tience and his suave simplicity.

He hails from Norfolk and friends call 
him Doc. He certainly didn't acquire 
that nickname for his heart-healing abil- 
ities — he breaks them. Even the Nor- 
folk girls can't resist him! 

Bob started to stand out early. An 
Eagle Scout with the Silver Palm, he 
learned seamanship first hand as a sea 
scout in a motor boat of his own build- 
ing. He was national secretary of the 
high school fraternity Tau Delta Tau 
and quarterbacked two teams, the Ter- 
rible Winona Condors, and the Fighting 
Ghent Wildcats. 

Then Doc came to the Academy. 
With his chin stuck forward and with his 
usual grim, determined walk, he stepped 
into our lives. Too light for varsity 
football, he starred in battalion football, 
track, and yawl racing. Bob has made 
many friends here, but he isn't leaving 
them behind upon graduation ; for once 
you have won his friendship he treasures 
it above all else.

"Johnny Wayne, oh! Johnny 
Wayne." Now where he picked up that 
name, no one knows, but whenever you 
hear it, pictures flash into your mind of 
Iowan corn fields, crossed rifles, lacrosse 
sticks, football gear, and last but not 
least — pretty girls, and among these 
scenes was Johnny Wayne, quietly se- 
rious, but with an ever ready, infectious 

Some of Wayne's achievements were 
but continuations of life before coming 
to the Academy. His N* on the rifle 
team was not the result of four years 
training here alone. He shot a con- 
sistent "high gun" on the Davenport 
High School R. O. T. C. Rifle Team. 
Wayne's military training as well began 
in this same R. O. T. C. in which he 
rose to the rank of Lt. Colonel. 

Most of Wayne's time was taken up in 
knocking an amazingly small bullseye 
out of a target at fifty feet. He was 
elected Captain of the Navy Rifle Team 
as a result. But to know him is to know 
that success will follow him wherever he

Hailing from the Buckeye stale, Frank 
chose the Naval profession because of 
his distinct urge to travel and because 
of his sea blood inheritance from an an- 
cestral sea captain. It was thus that 
the class oi hi 1 1 gained an additional 
member of note. 

Frank's very quiet and ever pleasant 
personality lias won many friends among 
us. His lighi brown hair and blue eyes, 
combined with his personality and his 
ability on the dance floor, account for 
his being seen frequently al the hops es- 
corting pretty young girls. 

We all had intentions of starring plebe 
year and so did Frank. However, he 
didn't quite make il and once we even 
came close to losing a good man. Frank, 
however, had that final ounce of men-

Though no star athlete, Frank has

ing, and tennis.

Having come from a land of giant

is famous, Jack decided to try his hand

result, he has been forced to be a mem-

Buck has held his own with both the 
academic and executive departments. 
Once the academics scored, but he made 
a comeback that rocked them back on 
their heels. The score since then has 
been in his favor. 

His generosity with the brownies from 
his O. A. O. will leave a lasting impres-

Tall, well-built, and serious in appear- 
ance, "Grabba" at first seemed too mili- 
tary for our Navy. Previous training in 
military schools in Georgia had given 
him a brace and posture still not at- 
tained by most of us. In spite of his 
rugged appearance and quick temper, 
he is normally quiet and usually easy to 
get along with. His activities at the 
Academy have been confined chiefly to 
battalion athletics, including football, 
basketball, and track. His first love in 


the line of recreation is the movie, and 
it is a rare liberty indeed in which he 
doesn't include one. In spite of the fact 
that he possesses all the snakelike qual- 
ities that attract women, he seldom 

"Grabba" has proved the worth of 
his intelligence, personality, and general

have given us, "Grabba."

Micky has that suave air that is char- 
acteristic of almost all university men 
for he spent two years prior to entering 
the Academy at the University of Wis- 
consin. His days there must have been 
full ones, for while he can tell you many 
a story about play and fun, still there 
are the many jobs he held while in the 
university. Here he gained that wealth 
of experience for dealing with people 
which has served him so well at the 
Academy. At the Navy Academy, 


Mick has contented himself with mak- 
ing friends and doing some battling with 
the sub squad. A foot injury ruined his 
chances of a promising track career, but 
he accepted it in accordance with his 
Irish temperament. With a permanent 
twinkle in his eye, Mick has had no 
trouble making friends. Yet, there is a 
bit of stubbornness in him that makes 
one feel that here is a man not to be 
stepped on. We are confident that Mick 
will not need "the luck of the Irish" to 
make a successful officer.

Bradford, N. H. 

"Up in the Franconia Mountains 
God Almighty has hung out a sign to 
show that, in New England, He makes 
men." Proof of these words is found in 
the person of "Bunk," the "Bradford 
terror." Additional proof may be found 
in the testimony of any of the men he 
has met during his very successful box- 
ing career here at the Naval Academy. 

This lusty son of the mountains has 
been batting away at the world since 
he first started to crawl. His first co- 
herent words, "He only has two hands, 
hasn't he?" were an apt prophecy of his 
never - say - uncle method of going 
through life. His frequent, but not 
serious, tangles with the powers-that-be, 
academic and executive, show his abil- 
ity at both getting in and pulling out of 
trouble. Even if he had the opportu- 
nity, he could not sit by and consider 
life from the side of the road. Unless he 
is in the middle of a struggle, be it sports, 
studies, or some hard-to-convince per- 
son, he is not happy.

To find this "long-horn" on an after- 
noon, the most probable place to look 
would be the fencing loft, for fencing 
lias been Jim's favorite sport. Back in 
Youngster year he developed an active 
interest in sailing. As a result he has 
proved a valuable member of a number 
of racing crews. Outside of sports, Jim

his free time to the Reception Com-

accomplishments already. 

Besides sports and extra-curricula, 
Dick has several other hobbies worthy 
of consideration. His collection of pipes 
show rare smoking taste, and a good 
round of bridge after evening meal be- 
comes an excellent sauce for this tall 
New Englander. Though he enjoys the 
escorting privileges equally as well as 
anyone, he remains true to one. 


Washington, N. C. 


When North Carolina sent Roddy to 
the Naval Academy, she dispatched with 
him all those personal qualifications 
which are essential to a successful naval 
career. Roddy attended high school in 
his home town, Washington, where he 
soon qualified himself academically for 
the more strenuous training of V. M. I. 
After one year there the lure of the 
Navy overcame his military ambitions - 
and Roddy changed leave address cards

in the direction of the Boat Club, where

for his sailing spirit. Leave is spent

coast. "Five hours of fishing with the 
boys in Pop's cabin cruiser, a two hour 
flake-out session, and then an evening's 
jam session with the girls back in town 
is the life for me," says Roddy, as he

Some people might call him a Snake, 
but that is only because he manages to 
drag more on his monthly insult than 
they. Lloyd's favorite occupation is 
dragging, but that failing, or in the 
middle of the week, he enjoys a game of 
tennis, a swim, a turn around the track, 
or a ketch or yawl trip. A good book 
or a game of bridge is his bad weather 
standby. He has a great capacity for 
making friends, both inside and outside

Herb is the typically stolid, even tem-

Herb gets a bad break and is prevented

yet to see him "bricked." His friendly 
personality overcomes a natural reserve 
to draw many friends to him. Herb is 
one of those people who can always 
bring a smile when things aren't run- 
ning smoothly and make you feel better 
in spite of yourself. Along with his 
steady calm and reliability, these qual- 
ities should prove him to be a valuable 
friend and real asset to the service.

Brooklyn, N. Y. 

Living not far from the Brooklyn 
Navy Yard, Bill's interest was naturally 
aroused by the Navy. Not wishing to 
waste time, he came to the Academy 
fresh out of high school after first taking 
time out to establish a record in swim- 
ming. This record still stands today. 
Swimming, then, has taken up most of 
Bill's time at the Academy. Many an 
evening he has almost missed supper 
formation because he remained in the 
pool for a last few minutes. But when 


the long training season is over, he turns 
to second love — model building. Ask 
him sometime to show you his models! 
His collection ranges from submarines 
to Transatlantic clippers, all actual scale 

Though short in stature, Bill is big in 
friendliness. He is ever ready to lend 
a helping hand. He has received many 
a set-back, but he has usually managed 
to find some element of humor in it to 
tide him over.

Binks has been acquainted with the 
Navy for a number of years. He has 
observed the service from almost every 
naval station from Lakehurst to Shang- 
hai : the Naval Academy was no sur- 
prise to him. 

Plebe year he appeared as a promising 
young wrestler and a fast lacrosse man, 
but for various and sundry reasons his 
plans were slightly altered, though he 
pursued both sports with plenty of en- 
thusiasm for the following three years. 
To omit the romantic interest would 
leave the picture altogether incomplete. 
Through three and a half years of toil, 
turmoil, and confusion, Binks and Pea- 
nut have managed to remain in that 
stage we all read and hear about but 
see so seldom to such an extent that 
many wagers have been made as to the 

Professionally, Binks has what it takes

any situation with the necessary vigor 
and tact, he'll climb right up the ranks.

Brighton, Mass. 

Boston Charlie, born in Milton, Mas- 
sachusetts, soon moved to Boston — 
which he now claims as his home. 
Living near the sea, Walter got slightly 
salty before he sailed the Severn. This, 
and a year at Boston College made him 
feel pretty much at ease around tile 
old Academy. Endowed with a cynical 
sense of humor, he never worried but 
took things as they came — he bellowed 
long and loudly, but it was all in fun. 

Walt's troubles at the Naval School 
quickly fell into three parts : getting 
himself up that awfully high rope, con- 
vincing Massachusetts girls that Anna- 
polis wasn't too far away, and getting 
enough gravy in his dailies to hold up 
those exams. The fall months at the 
Academy found Walter playing battal- 
ion football and reading magazines ; 
during the winter it was more maga- 
zines ; but in the spring the young man's 
fancy lightly turned to thoughts of sail- 
boats — this was tops. 

Whether Walter flys, dives, or punches 
a stadimeter is as yet undecided, but 
whatever branch, we wish him luck and 
know he'll do well.

Twenty-two years ago, Red's parents 
were blessed with a red haired bomb- 
shell. When he first learned to talk, it 
is very probable that he complained that 
there were not enough little girls in the 
neighborhood to play with. 

Four years ago, Rouge emerged from 
the back woods of North Dakota to en- 
ter the four grey walls and has been a 
staunch all-navy man ever since. His 
addiction to honeymoon bridge during 
study hour and his atrocious taste in 


music aside, Red makes a splendidly 
agreeable roommate. His favorite re- 
cordings which he terms real "low down 
stuff" are enough to awaken the dead. 
Red's favorite sport is baseball, at which 
he plays a mean second base or pitcher. 
He's pretty fair at basketball too. The 
interests of Red's heart are numerous 
and he continually mumbles about true 

Rouge's love of the Navy is deep set, 
and the old salt should do well. It is 
hoped that in the future, as in the past, 
he will always have ready a cheery 
word for the service.

Hollywood, Calif. 

Torsion entered the service with a 
nautical background. His grandfather 
held the now non-existent rank of Com- 
modore. Playing with the old gentle- 
man's sword and listening to his stories, 
Torrey came to understand the fascina- 
tion of the naval profession. 

A deep love has made the inter-leave 
periods drag by very slowly at times. 
The academics have suffered so the 
daily letter would leave on time. The 
Ring Dance with its double ring cere- 
mony cemented his faith. 

Personally, Torsion is a pretty fair 
partner. His athletic efforts are con- 
fined to brief sessions on the hand- 
ball court or track, followed by ample 
rest periods. A good argument is al- 
ways welcome, particularly on the sub- 
ject of bridge. Musically, he likes the 
classics, played very loud and over and 
over again, while he adds his own deep 
voice to the confusion. But these are 
the things that make a man different — 
that make association with him to be

Before having any inkling that his fu- 
ture was to be a sea-faring one, Arthur 
took a pre-medical course at the Uni- 
versity of Missouri. Although these 
studies have not helped him much at 
the Academy, he has done well scholas- 
tically. And for this reason alone, if for 
no other, Arthur has retained the ex- 
tremely valuable trait of public service. 

St. Louis can well be proud of Arthur. 
As long as we have known him, we have 
never seen him depressed, never dis- 
heartened, and never dull ; many and 
many an empty moment has been en- 
livened by his good natured humor. 
Whenever a "bull session" is in progress, 
it is a safe bet that Arthur will be in the 
middle of it. Applying the philosophy 
of the maximum results with a minimum 
of effort to the problem of academics, 
he has fared remarkably well — although 
the longing sometimes returns for his 
good old college days. 

Arthur's ability to make friends has 
made his stay here a happy one for him 
and for all of us.

Greensboro, N. C. 

Entering after three years of college 
and endowed with a natural sense of in- 
dependence and congenial irresponsi- 
bility, Bill found plebe year a bit hard 
to swallow, but he now realizes that it 
was just part of the system. 

Bill possesses, besides his pleasing 
drawl and true Southern courtesy, a 
certain "female appeal" which is en- 
vied by all those who know him. It may 
be unfair to class him as a Casanova, 
but we still maintain that his experiences 


with the "flying squadron" have had a 
great deal to do with his success on the 
track team. 

Although a good law practice com- 
bined with politics was Bill's first aim, 
he has joined us all in the more techni- 
cal life of the Navy, and we hope for as 
many more good times together after 
graduation as we have had before. If 
Bill were to fly the four star flag his first 
order would be for all hands to enjoy 
one continuous youngster cruise, some 
plenty good leaves, with a little neces- 
sary work thrown in between times.

One would think that "Rojo," the

Although he's not particularly out- 
standing in any field of athletics, Grant 
can, nevertheless, well hold his own in 
practically any. He specializes in Bat- 
talion football and varsity baseball. 
Despite these many activities he man- 
ages to spend his rainy afternoons act- 
ing with the local dramatic clubs. 

Sailing was almost his Waterloo for a 
time until he benefited from some ex- 
cellent extra instruction in this line. His 
ability at drill might also be partially ex- 
plained by his zeal to practice, too, even 
during recreation on the rear terrace. 

Generous and likable, Grant makes 
friends almost in spite of himself. Jo- 
vial, jolly, joking, his outlook on life is 
as bright as his hair.

When "Rosie" was persuaded to put 
on his first pair of shoes, the neighbors 
all took him for a "Reve noo or," and 
he was forced to forsake his corn likker, 
shootin' "aim" and beloved mountains 
of Tennessee for the cold grey walls of 
the Naval Academy. Since then "Ro- 
sie" has become a first-class Snake ; he 
has developed a remarkable eye for 
good looking women, and a talent for 
out-witting the academic department. 

Although he firmly believes that sleep 
is man's best friend, "Rosie" has never- 
theless found the time and energy to be 
out there on the mound winging a few 
fast ones over the platter when spring 
and baseball season come around. 
Someday this lanky lad will roam the 
seven seas in the service of the Navy ;

Jo found that the fair sex gave him more

this was due to his artistic ability ; he is 
truly a Petty rival worth reckoning with. 
A virtual Croesus, Wilbur can turn any-

Always tanned as though by a tropical

good health, a sense of well being, and 
an inexhaustible supply of humor. 

Born in Pennsylvania, Stoughlon's 
stork missed his mark because he has 
definite Southern tendencies. Not 
averse to work, Stout just can't find the 
time or stir up enough ambition ; his 
should be a life in the shade of a palm 
with a julep in his hand. However he 
bestirs himself enough to elude the axe 
of the Academic Department and may 
be found idling away spare moments on 
the track or lacrosse field. Whether it's 
the tan, the beaming grin, the indolent, 
irresponsible attitude, or the never fail- 
ing good nature, Stoughton certainly 
holds a fatal fascination for the fairer sex. 

Whoever lands with Stew after we are 
scattered in the fleet can be assured of 
a good messmate and friend.

"Daub" is a product of the Navy 
and, as such has no home except Ban- 
croft Hall. His friendliness and good 
disposition are well mixed with a deep 
liking for literature and the social sci- 
ences. His manifold interests, his very 
marked love of luxuries — including soft 
lights and all that accompanies them — 
has managed to keep him in a continual 
state of financial embarrassment. He 
has never willfully missed a hop, and 
among the milling crowd at Dahlgren 
Hall, he can be easily distinguished by 
his rhumba and his off-key singing. 
Among his minor manias are a passion 
for writing and, an ever-ready disposi- 
tion, likes to argue. His ventures in- 
to athletics are confined to spasmodic 
workouts with bar-bells. 

Yet when responsibilities in this Man's 
Navy are portioned out, "Daub" will 
be ready to leave his easy going life 
ashore and assume the disciplined life 
of sea duty. 

Indianola, Iowa 

Iowa's loss was the Navy's gain when 
Chuck chose to follow the sea, but he 
dors not lose track of the happenings in 
Indianola. The weekly issue of the 
Cornstalk Clarion arrives regularly and

Chuck began plebe year by under- 
scoring the definition of "Red Mike" 
in his Reef Points but he expressed his 
growing faith in women by dragging 
more and more as the weeks went by. 
Man\- tire the men that enter the Naval 
Academy from the fleet, but there are 
lew who arrive directly from their ship. 
Chuck came straight from the "Missy," 
and the extra work involved has char- 
acterized his life ever since. Not con- 
tent with just getting along, he has al- 
ways put in a few extra licks for good 
measure. He is hard working and yet 
has the facility of complete relaxation 
when his work is finished. His habits of 
hard work, perseverance, and concen- 
tration are analogous to the word "suc-

accomplished gadgeteers, "Stan" keeps 
the wherewithal to pursue his many and 
varied hobbies stored in his copious 
strong box. Able to fix anything for 
anyone, "Mac" is a worthy substitute 
for the Master-at-arms. In addition to 
an infectious, good-natured grin, and a 
desire to help, "Mac" is one of the few 
true optimists that are always willing to 
drag blind, although he claims to have 
found "the one." Good books and music 
seem to be Leland's only vices but to 
1 hem he devotes almost every spare mo- 
ment. Three years devotion to the 
''Hell Cats" has given "Mac" contact 
with the music he loves, and his store- 
house of knowledge includes Bach to 
Strauss. He is extremely self-sufficient ; 
lime is never idle on his hands. Con- 
stantly busy either managing swimming 
or engaged in his numerous hobbies, 
"Mac" leads a full life.

During his boyhood, Bill was influ- 
enced by the naval career of his father, 
and his earliest remembered ambition 
was to follow in his father's footsteps. 
After overcoming numerous obstacles, 
he is at last realizing his ambition. 

Bill is gifted with a deep and sincere 
love of music, and he utilizes practically 
all of his spare hours in pursuing his art. 
Perhaps he is not yet a rival of the great 
Krcisler, but still he doesn't just "fiddle 
around," ; he is really an accomplished 
violinist. The Musical Club Shows and 
the choir have seen Bill's smiling face 
and heard his voice ever since he was a 
plebe. Bill's other hobbies arc sailing 
in the dinghies and the Vamarie, and 
building detailed boat models. 

Always quiet, good-humored, hard 
working, congenial and persevering, Bill 
has a most remarkable faculty for mak- 
ing the best use of his time. Whenever 
he becomes interested in a job, he gen- 
erally takes it up whole-heartedly — and 
the result is that his hobbies are related 
and leave him never a dull moment.

On the day that Jim received his ap-

had been working as an assistant sur- 
veying a highway. It was the third 
of July, and one of those hot, dry and 
windy days. As Jim walked along in the 
Ih.u of 1 20 degrees, sparrows and mead- 
ow larks hopped doggedly after him, to 
keep in his shadow. His footsteps sent 
clouds of dust up to choke him. Jim's 
only thoughts were of the celebration to 
be held the next day. That night he 
received the announcement of his ap- 
pointment and there was no holiday lor 
Jim ; he spent the next day on the train. 

Perhaps it is because he is so good 
natured and happy that everyone likes 
Jim. Those who know him best see him 
as a perfect friend and shipmate. This 
tall, rangy, soli spoken westerner will

Like most of us who wound up in the 
Navy, Dev didn't know just what he 
was going to do for a career until one 
summer he shipped aboard a merchant- 
man for his first taste of seagoing life. 
After that it didn't take long for him to 
abandon his aspirations to become an 
engineer or a politician. Freshman year 
at college completed, he wrenched him- 
self away from his beloved California to 
take up his new life on the Severn. Dev 
brought with him an exceedingly vast 
store of common knowledge, and a 
gifted tongue. He can speak with au- 
thority on almost any contemporary 
subject, but sometimes we question the 
authenticity of the astounding figures 
he quotes in establishing his claims. 
Next to a good argument, he likes best 
a good game of billiards or bridge. 
Keeping on the right side of the aca- 
demic department has always been the 
very least of his worries. His frankness 
sometimes astounds us, but his keen ob- 
servation, good common sense, and ac- 
tive mind will carry him a long way in

One of Krebby's summer vagabond 
vacations took him to the West Coast, 
where he got his first glimpse of the 
ocean. Perhaps that trip furnished the 
motive for his coming to Annapolis, for 
any young man is fascinated by his first 
glimpse of the ocean — especially a fel- 
low from the plains of Dakota. He 
wrestled with Chemical formulae for 
two years at the University of North 
Dakota, working on a surveying crew 
during the summer months. Becoming 


thoroughly disgusted with the dust and 
grasshoppers, he finally decided to in- 
vestigate the Navy. He joined us late 
plebe summer, but it took him only a 
short time to become accustomed to his 
new surroundings. He quickly gained 
our admiration for the most uncanny 
manner in which he juggled his math.

"Big-hearted Burt," that is what they

this sincere generosity and his ever-

Burt thoroughly likable. His cheerful

There are few as fortunate as Burt in

success in any social circle. Although 
Burt had a decided weakness for the 
fairer sex, it is merely to the extent of 
being enjoyable, but never too serious. 
Besides dragging, his favorite sport is

Personality "plus," that's Bob. And 
making up this personality are elements 
which blend to make him a perfect

tle wit, and a sincere generosity are most 
outstanding. He has a good philosophy 
of life and is ever looking for a similar 
one in others. Having spent some seven 
years of his life "on his own," knocking 
about the world, Bob has a trail of 
friends that extends almost around the 
world. Bob is extremely fond of horses 
and will talk for hours with anyone who 
likes the subject as much as he does. 

Academics have been no obstacle for 
this brilliant lad, and though not on 
any varsity athletic list, he is, neverthe- 
less, quite agile when it comes to sports 
— boxing and football being his favor- 

In planning for his future, Bob has

begin his military career at Riverside

O. and a champion fencer he rode high 
at Vanderbill, but his passion for med- 
icine was overshadowed by the call to 
arms. Marion Military Institute was 
the final stepping stone to a career on 
the sea. He is rapidly becoming an cx- 
perl swimmer because of his conscien- 
tious efforts on the sub-squad. Four 
days a week he can be found engrossed 
in a little siesta by the side of the pool. 
We picked him up at the end of young- 
ster year as a stray after he had lost his

cherry aye aye are as a ray of sunshine

Hard work and a tenacious nature

Even a jaunt to South Dakota did not

it takes to occupy a man of the world. 
He never missed a chance to tell those

lost count of the number of young ladies 
he has dragged that have that Southern 
accent. The middle of second class year 
found him as a stag for the first time at 
a hop. 

Dave has as much athletic gear as 
any man in the regiment to help keep 
that waistline trim. Track, football, 
and boxing make his year a full one. 

Dave has only two complaints: that 
of always finding his last cigarette miss-

Strangely enough though, each year he 
sees better, and never has any trouble 
focusing a pair of binoculars on the fair

Jackson, Tenn. 

Having been a savoir at Jackson High 
School, Jackson, Tennessee, Squire 
readily stepped into his College work at 
Union University. His early ambition 
to be a sailor prompted him to lay aside 
his preparations for another career and 
come North to the Naval Academy. 
From the start, Squire has always signed 
up for athletic gear in sports in order to 
have an outfit in which to undertake his 
own private system of workouts. Al- 
though he never afforded the Naval 
Academy a view of his prowess on the 
basketball court, it has been said that 
in high school he excelled as a good de- 
fense man. At any hop, Squire can be 
seen exhibiting his terpsichorean abil- 
ities, regardless of whether he is stagging 
or dragging. Tales of his earlier esca- 
pades never tire his listeners, as his sup- 
ply of them is interminable. Being a 
member of the Boat Club, he can com- 
bine his two hobbies, sailing and drag- 
ging, and in spite of an apparent disdain 
for the Navy, there is within him a burn- 
ing desire for the service.

Spokane, Wash. 

With a love of the service born of the 
Sea Scouts and Naval R. O. T. C. 
Tommy came, fresh from happy-go- 
lucky college days. At the University of 
Washington he was a Psi Epsilon mem- 
ber and a hurdler on the -track team. 
Since his plebe days at the Academy, 
Tommy has girded himself with the uni- 
form of almost every sport here ; how- 
ever, football and track have had the 
inside post in his athletic loves. 

Every Christmas Tommy vows to stay 
east and partake of the Atlantic type of 
Christmas cheer, but on the first day of 
leave the Pacific yearn floods his veins, 
and he wings his way through the bliz- 
zards to the snow-covered hills and un- 
conquerable wilds of Washington. 

From the fresh water lakes of Wash- 
ington to the salt water of the seven 
seas . . . the transition has not been an 
easy one, for the crystal pools of the 
Evergreen State still lure this native 
son . . . but the call of the sea has also 
found a place in this man's heart, and 
he has chosen the sea for his home.

Syracuse, N. Y. 

A sailor indeed! Harry's love of sail- 
ing was the impetus that resulted in his 
coming to the Academy. When sailing 
dinghies, yawls, or the Vamarie, he is in 
his element. If he becomes prematurely 
wrinkled, it will be due not only to his 
perpetual smile, but also to the long 
hours he has spent sailing and squinting 
over the sparkling waves. He has al- 
ways laughed at anything approximat- 
ing humor and countered with a little 
addition of his own. Balanced with his 
love of fun is energetic industry. He is 
a firm believer in the old adage that if 
a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing 
well, and he never departs from the 
execution of this philosophy. 

However, his capacity for fun and 
work is dwarfed by his capacity for food. 
In spite of his small physical dimensions, 
he packs away enough of the Navy's 
chow to be a liability to any wardroom 
mess. His knowledge of the sea and his 
knowledge of men are credits, however, 
which far overbalance this sole debit.

San Francisco, Calif. 

Tully hails from the Sunny State of 
California, like many other Navy jun- 
iors hasn't seen much of his native land. 
This fact hasn't detracted from his love 
for home, however. 

Sincere endeavor to do the right thing 
is a trait that will stand Tully in good 
stead for the rest of his life. Definitely 
not the cramming type, he still manages 
to come out on the good side of the 2.5 
mark ; but to do this he must sacrifice 
a potentially versatile athletic career. 
As it is, the old man managed to find 
time to earn an N* in soccer, dash 
around the basketball court during the 
winter, and romp with the lacrosse 
squad in the spring. He is really an 
authority on swing, his repertory of 
"jive" is voluminous. 

Another fact brings to light his con- 
stant humor and ability to keep class- 
mates in a cheery mood. Proof of his 
capricious nature is the many funny 
stories and questionable jokes accepted 
by the Log. His full life has no room 
for a dull moment.

When Bob came to the Naval Acad- 
emy his rifle came with him. Being an 
old hand at hunting, he readily adopted 
himself to the rifle range. His ability 
as a marksman is shown by a glance at 
the record scores for both the small bore 
and outdoor rifle teams. Y'ou can rind 
his name as a runner-up in the Naval 
Academy individual small bore rifle 
championship match and winner of the 
second class competition. 

At other times his shooting is done 
with a less dangerous weapon, the cam- 
era. His special interest is color pho- 
tography. Along the same artistic lines 
comes his at live part in designing the 
Regimental Christmas Card. The 
Ketches must also be considered ; for 
many a week-end has found him afloat 
on the Chesapeake as an active Boat

be mentioned too; for they are filled 
with escorting one of the most beautiful

Windsor, Vt. 

Jack may have been a Green Moun- 
tain boy when he left Vermont, but you 
will look many a league along the Ches- 
apeake before you will find a saltier 
yachtsman today. Whether it's the 
Vamarie, or a yawl, or a dinghy, he likes 
nothing better than a sail on a breezy 
day with a long beat to windward and 
white water rolling over the rail. Yet 
Jack is the type who relegates all activ- 
ities to their proper places — fall, winter, 
and spring. Just as Easter time is the 


time for eggs and the time for eggs is 
Easter time, so too is dinghy time fall 
and spring— gym time, winter and aca- 
demic time all the time. 

He has a knack for throwing himself 
heartily into any job which should be 
done. "Industry" must be the watch- 
word. He is even tempered, good-na- 
tured, fair and square, and possesses 
plenty of that dry Yankee humor.

We don't know whether it was the 
foreign air of Canada in his youth or 
the mountain sunshine of California 
later that did the trick, but suffice to 
say, Al's a pretty fine specimen. Ex- 
cept for an occasional Morgan Hill 
Bugle, we hear little of California and 
the old home town. Maybe it's a small 
place or maybe it's just his philosophy 
to live for the present. Studies and 
marks don't bother him too much since 
he'd rather get by and spend the excess 
time reading and figuring out the prac- 
tical side of things. Always either laugh- 
ing and carrying on a bull session or 
in one of his silent moods which express 
his displeasure usually at you, music, or 
irresponsible plebes, Al has developed an 
independence which along with his fine 
physique has made him one of those 
magazine "he-men." Batt wrestling in 
the winter, crew in the spring, and year- 
around dragging of the O. A. O., who 
lives conveniently close, rounded out his 
full schedule of life within those four

When Buce left the hills of Seattle for 
what Uncle Sam had to offer, he did so 
whole-heartedly. That is his way. 
Never anything but sincere with all that 
concerns him, Bruce has a pleasant 
nature, that makes him a friend of all. 
After knowing him for awhile, we are 
quite sure of the intelligence which his 
modesty and serious application tend to 
hide. Never have we seen anyone who 
can set a goal and work so steadfastly to 
attain it. 

Gym made him "Suicide." And 
when he does that half twist, we know 
why! Yes, gym is his love here, and to 
be an Intercollegiate Champion is not a 
bad reward. 

"Suicide" stars at the hops when he 
is not stagging or on a gym trip. We 
wonder sometimes what he is going to 
substitute for the parallel bars in the 
fleet, for we suspect the sea is in his 
blood. We hope it is, and here's luck to 
you, fellow, though you are not one to 
depend on it too much.

Chad, a quiet, good looking Texan, is 
a lad with a wealth of practical sense. 
A hard worker, he has an industry de- 
veloped by constant application to a va- 
riety of pursuits. Since he started to

unconcerned attitude towards life, but 
his is a definitely matured outlook to- 
wards its many complexities. Others 
may "star" now, but Chad is patiently 
awaiting the day he dons the big stripe 
and returns to the Fleet. There, pure 


book learning will not play such a prom- 
inent part and success will be the just 
reward of the officer who is capable of 
handling men and getting efficient re- 

He is not one to lose sight of the joy 
in living ; "good nature" has always

Always tinkering, congenial, shrewd, 
with a sarcastic retort for anyone that

meet those gorgeous Texas lassies that 
are swarming Hollywood.

A faithful son of Dixieland from 'way 
down in Georgia is our "Rebel." Truly 
a Southern gentlemen, he is easy going, 
soft spoken, and intelligent . . . his opin- 
ions are immutable ... he is prolific in 
his ideas . . . and he accomplishes a 
great amount of work with a surpris- 
ingly small output of effort. 

Bill has always had a fondness for trav- 
eling. He early forsook the land of 
cotton and began seeing the world by 
donning the Navy Blue. Coming to 
Annapolis was a follow through. South 
America, with its gold mines, tropical 
jingles, and pretty senoritas, ever holds 
a great attraction for Bill. 

"Four years together by the sea where 

Severn joins the tide, 
Then by the service called away, we're 
scattered far and wide." 
Yet still some day when the long sea 
trek is over and retirement is the re- 
ward of years of patient endeavor, Bill 
hopes to return to his beloved South- 
land and live an unhurried life, loung- 
ing amongst the magnolias and sipping

Aggressive, dynamic, and forceful,

"Blackie" allows himsell no half-way

After two years of college, Panama's

easy going life of the tropics for the high- 
tempoed routine of the Academy. But 
a late start was no handicap to our Bill. 
His easy going nature and conversa-

a welcome addition to any group. So 
he quickly found his place. Naturally 
savvy, outstanding in Spanish, academ- 
ics gave him little trouble, and the lure 
ol water soon made its appearance. 
Even die dismal winter cold that seeps 
into the natatorium was no deterrent to 
his varsity swimming. Spring and fall 
found him on the water again with a 
nllci in one hand and ihc main sheet in 
the other. Not the least of his joys has 
been dragging; an underlying serious- 
ness of purpose and ideals, however, 
belies his pose as an unconcerned native

Grayling, Mich. 

"I'm in favor of it." Whether it is 
sailing, swimming, cross-country hik- 
ing, or turning in early, Bobby is in 
favor of it. His enthusiasm is always 
positive, often contagious, his wealth of 
energy wearing clown all opposition. Of 
course there are varying degrees of en- 
thusiasm. He shows very little toward 
any suggestion that he refuse a second 
helping in order to keep down his weight 
for boxing. 

But, should an occasion arise which 
calls for, or even allows for, a drag, his 
enthusiasm soars, and is topped only by 
his enthusiasm for sailing. His skill at 
the helm of a sailboat has resulted, not so 
much from long experience, as from his 
sheer will to learn. Sailing has become 
a part of him. The harder it blows, 
the better he likes it. Even rain doesn't 
dampen his ardor. To be sure, he 
thrives on rain. When ashore, he en- 
joys long walks in the rain, claiming 
that such walks are conducive to deep 
thought. His class standing indicates 
that the practice may not be a bad one.

Some of his camera shots arc as spec-

attracted to sailboats in action. He soon

aboard one of the yawls, and when not

ping pictures of white water or lull sails. 

He doesn't drag often, but he is obvi-

From the cold northlands of Minne-

The "big ole" home back in Texas, the

the doors are unlocked for the public's 
observation. But like the jewels of a

he had not yet crossed, then striking off 
on a sometimes disastrous detour, still 


facing the future and forever closing the

Johnny's overburdened senses cannot 
hold past, present, and future all at the

his point, showed that Joe was a fighter. 

Though Joe had never seen a soccer 
ball before he came to the Academy, 
he soon became an interested and val-

can be measured by the fact that he

A slight run in with the Academic

A thorough understanding of Arch 
would have to comprise an appreciation 
of both professional and cultural sub- 
jects. Intensely alive, his nimble mind 
is equally adept at rendering the latest 
songs of the radio or giving the ord- 
nance prof a convincing argument. As 
a roommate it would be sacrilege to 
notice his absentmindedness. Remem- 
ber the math class you spent browsing in 
the Mid'n Store, Arch, quite oblivious 
that the rest of us were chalking probs 
on boards over at Maury Hall? Fully 
compensating for this forgetfulness is 
Arch's ability to prevent any conversa- 
tion from lapsing into the dull side with 
either the femmes or the fellows. 

We have given up trying to convince 
him that there is a substitute for the 
beaming sunshine of the West Coast 

Those who don't know him might be 
led to think at times that Arch is a wee 
bit too "Navy." But underneath it all 
we sense his true feelings.

Columbus, Ohio 

In 1935 Columbus sent another son 
to travel the road to the Academy and 
the sea. The call of the Academy was 
not the result of an appointment on a 
silver platter, but a heart-felt desire that 
was answered by enlistment and two 
years of hard work. 

As a roommate, friend, and compan- 
ion, Rudy is hard to beat. His disgust 
for arguments has helped to prevent 
many from becoming free for alls. An 
artist at making friends, Fred is noted 
for his pleasing smile and friendly salu- 
tations. Rudy is a firm believer in 
week-ends. During the week he doesn't 
mind working hard, but if a week-end 
comes without a drag on hand or a 
ketch trip planned, Rudy is not con- 
tent. Retching has been his substitute 
for sea life. Soon after entering he be- 
came interested in the ketches and since 
has shown his ability as a ketch skipper. 

Though service life is not all pleasure, 
Rudy's ability to accept, with a smile, 
anything that comes his way makes him 
well fitted for this. 

San Antonio, Texas 

Calm cool, collected, and composed — 
it ain't no cucumber that confronts you, 
brother, but the most imperturbable bit 
of protoplasm you've ever seen. We're 
not implying that he's allergic to women 
. . . nor they to him, but for all of that 
George is a real man's man. He has al- 
ways been a veritable messiah of good 
will to all of more than a nodding ac- 
quaintance. Perhaps it is his fairness ; 
perhaps, his open mind ; perhaps, the 
combination of an unassuming and an 
unru filed outlook — but whatever the ex- 
planation we are quite willing to ac- 
cept that George is George . . . just as a 
spade is a spade. 

George's first shower when he lias re- 
membered to bring both soap and towel is 
yet to come. And then there's the inev- 
itable threat that accompanies an un- 
ventilated room : "Hey! My claustro- 
phobia!" With our limited vocabulary, 
we are at a disadvantage from the begin- 
ning. So we open the windows. And 
again the impersonal process of freezing 
is painfully begun.

Jay received the nickname, "Honest 
George," along with many others, when 
a plcbe and it seems that it will follow 
him always. Lest the sobriety some- 
times associated with Jay be predomi- 
nant, let it be said that he has been the 
proponent of countless jokes on his (lass- 
mates which often have boomeranged 
in spectacular fashion. 

Pursuing his academics and searching 
for an O. A. O. to end all O. A. O.'s, he 
has not yet "starred" in either but just as 
surely as the old battle cry, "It's gonna 
be different next time," rings after every 
exam week, he is certain to have his 
steadfastness of purpose rewarded. All 
of which shows that Jay never gives up 
the ship. Few are the arguments he has 
lost, as can be testified by his hei klers. 
He always closes with the punch line, 
"Aw, that's just your defense mechan- 

But no matter how hard the knocks 
which may conic his way, one can al- 
ways find a gleam in his eye, a ready 
"iiaik" on his tongue, and plenty of 
vim, vigor, and vitality.

Turning his back to the prospects of a 
career in electrical engineering, Don en- 
tered the naval profession to satisfy his 
boyhood yearning for the sea. How- 
ever, since a dinghy sank beneath him, 
leaving our hero stranded in the Severn's 
icy waters, and the Claxton showed this 
ECansan the difference between the roll- 
ing of the Atlantic and the western 
plains, Don lias regarded water-borne 
craft with a cautious eye. After strug- 
gling two years with the Athletic De- 
partment to become proficient in the art 
of swimming, Don began to carry the 
torch for the Medical Department. Dur- 
ing recreation hours he may usually be 
found taking a workout in the gym ; nev- 
ertheless, his interest in sailing, radio, 
and aviation often divert his athletic en- 
deavors. Don possesses a remarkable 
amount of poise and a calm manner 
which always acts as a stabilizer on his 
associates and helps him immeasurably 
in the solution of many knotty problems. 
His thoughtfulness, fine sense of humor, 
serenity, and vigorousness have made 
him an excellent roommate and will 
serve him well in the future. 


Pasadena, Calif. 

"Nick" came to the Naval Academy 
with the same idea in mind that all of us 
had — that of giving his best and hoping 
to reach the top. He realized his ambi- 
tion through the combination of gray 
matter, hard work, and that ever-looked- 
for trait, common sense. His ability to 
take it on the chin and come back to 
even greater successes has been proved 
more than once in his encounters with 
the Medical Department. Nothing 
pleases him more than a smartly rigged 


sailboat and a spanking breeze ; and 
many a recreation hour in spring, sum- 
mer or fall were spent on the Severn and 
the Chesapeake. You see, those quali- 
ties which placed Nick at the top of his 
class, plus his eagerness to lend a helping 
hand at all times and under all circum- 
stances to anyone needing a little excel- 
lent counsel, have also placed him first 
in our esteem and respect, and have 
garnered for him the respect and affec- 
tion of his classmates.

Ask any D. O., "Who is the easiest 
man in the regiment to find?" and the 
answer will be, "Vince, the boy avia- 
tor" — traceable by the penetrating odor 
of banana oil. When he's at work the 
whole deck knows it, and very often the 
whole deck comes to see what his latest 
project is. 

Vince came to us from an engineering 
school in Kansas and the ideas he had 
there have not changed one bit in his 
four-year association with the Naval 
Academy. Design 'em, build 'em, and 
fly 'em ; these three things cover the ap- 
parent ambitions of our western boy. 
His friends have watched his models 
grow from fragile little things of paper 
and balsa, to a room-filled giant pow- 
ered by a pair of tiny gasoline motors. 
To this hobby, he has been faithful, let- 
ting only sub squad activities interfere 
with his work. 

Yet this bonny Scotsman has a totally 
unpredictable wit for all his persever- 
ance ; these two qualities which have 
made him the finest of roommates, as- 
sure him success in future associations.

When Jim left Marble, Colorado, he 
bade adieu to two years of education as a 
teacher, and a job in the Marble Rock 
Quarry. This background, and his Irish 
wit, have served him well. However, his 
home in the Rockies was hardly condu- 
cive to an acquaintance with the sea, 
and in Maryland he has felt lost without 
his mountains and trout streams — he felt 
lost until the Decatur left New York on 
the destroyer cruise, when he discovered 
some mountains in the old Atlantic 
Ocean. "Mac" has a batting average 
on the diamond to be proud of and an 
average for blind dragging that his less 
fortunate classmates can envy. We'd all 
like to find out how he does it, but even 
if we can't put our fingers on the quali- 
ties that make for Jim's successes, and 
since they say men are born with these 
qualities, we'll just have to step aside 
and fill the bleachers while the world 
throws her little obstacles across the plate 
and Jim parks them over the fence. 

Philadelphia, Pa. 

Plebe summer brought an influence 
into Gus's life. His need for organized 
recreation caused him to turn his atten- 
tion to crew, where his lanky form could 
be used to excellent advantage. This 
sport was to become one of his foremost 
interests at the Academy. Early spring, 
blistered hands, and a close shaved head 
are as one to Gus each year. A few 
scrapes with the Academic Department 
did not deter him from the pursuit of his 


Baseball 4, 3, 2; N. 

ambition. Next to his crew, Gus loves 
his dragging best of all. Whenever he 
has a week-end free, he is to be found 
dragging some comely lass. This fun- 
loving fellow can be as serious as needs 
be when the occasion arises. He has 
that natural grasp of situations that is 
inherent in too few persons. He needs 
relatively little daily preparation in his 
studies, but that little is thoroughly and 
conscientiously done. "Knobby" al- 
ways finds time to "bone" Cosmo, and 
to send out a never-ending stream of let- 
ters, and he always receives almost as 
many in return.

"Pass the dessert, please!" George's 
fondest desire is to satisfy his appetite in- 
dulging in food which his mother sends 
him quite frequently or from most any 
other source. Food will always be 
George's downfall ; he is still lifting 
himself up the rope and trying to navi- 
gate the natatorium successfully. 

George's outside activities have not 
been varied, but he is usually occupied. 
After four years of B-squad football he is 
content to spend his afternoons sailing in 
the yawls. 

George is conscientious and ambitious, 
and takes his academics very seriously. 
He is not an honor student, but if grades 
were awarded on effort, he would be 
deserving of the best. 

George is not one of the Academy's 
famed "Red-Mikes," although his drag- 
ging escapades are usually spasmodic. 
He is much happier when he can have 
his freedom to venture forth to the mo- 
vies with one of the "Boys," when he 
knows that his time is his own.

Wilmington, Del. 

From the University of Virginia's 
country club life to Navy discipline is a 
long hard step, but "Duke" did it no- 
bly — though lie still claims to be a gen- 
tleman of leisure. His easy-going nature 
backs up his claim very nicely. 

A never ceasing source of wonder is 
his ability to get so much mail with so 
little effort on his part. The letters he 
does write must have that certain some- 
tiling. He claims to be a thorough "Red 
Mike," but the hops he misses are few 
and far between, and his numerous 
drags are not the worst. The number of 
pictures on his locker door are enough 
to awe the sternest D. O. 

In his leisure moments, he dabbles in 
fencing, figures out "losers" in bridge 
hands, and snows us under with stories 
of his adventures on leave. A minor 
accomplishment of "Duke's" is being 
able to uphold either side of an argu- 
ment with equal skill. 

His willingness to meet one more than 
half way makes him an excellent friend 
and "wife."

We were somewhat amazed at first 
when Mac seemed to take in everything 
that came along without any evident ef- 
fort, but we have come to accept this 
ease of accomplishment as an integral 
part of his makeup. Mac has only two 
worries in the world : - one is that he is 
losing his hair rather rapidly, and the 
other is that he is contracting insomnia. 
He has no worries about dragging, for 
he is a "Red Mike" beyond compare, 
and he stands in the upper fourth of his 
class without contemplating the idea of 

The rather dubious supply of excess 
energy exhibited on occasion by Mac 
makes him an exceptionally good bridge 
hand. Mac has been in the gym and 
the pool exactly three times since plebe 
summer — each time to pass a test. By 
this platform, we nominate him for the 
presidency of the radiator club. 

Imbued with a marvelous sense of hu- 
mor as well as a commanding presence 
in the face of argument, Mac can, and 
does, hold his end of any discussion.

He brought the ability to speak Span- 
ish fluently ... he brought the flavor of 
distant places from an early boyhood in 
Mexico ... he brought the charm of the 
South from a later boyhood in Ken- 
tucky. Add to these an intense, earnest 
interest in everything he does and you 
have George in a nutshell. 

If we want to know a lesson assign- 
ment, what the latest order said, or what 
time the boxing matches start, we ask 
George. He always knows the "dope," 
good or bad. Short in stature, he will 
go down in history as the formulator of 
the principle that a woman's beauty va- 
ries inversely as her height. He keeps us 
all happy with his cheerful flow of gos- 
sip and small talk. 

George's biggest trouble has been 
mathematics. Of ten math exams, he 
has failed ten — but when the final reck- 
onings have been made, George has al- 
ways been sat.

Four years at the University of Wy- 
oming and then the Naval Academy- 
it is something we could not understand. 
However, he hasn't seemed to miss the 
rangeland. His Christmas leaves have 
been spent in the company of the fairer 
sex, with the atmosphere of Pennsyl- 
vania preferred. 

Plebe year saw him doing the inevit- 
able. He dragged blind and fell in love. 
It took a year and a half of advice, ca- 
joling, and brow-beating to get him out 
of that. Since then he has carefully 
steered shy, but his presence at the hops 
has been assured by his election to the 
Hop Committee. 

"Speed's" bridge and golf are among 
the best, and aside from being one of 
the class "savoirs," he is a mighty fine 
fellow. His stories and jokes aren't too 
bad. For that reason he always makes 
the party more enjoyable. His spirited 
good nature and keen sense of humor 
have helped preserve the peace on many 
occasions. "Speed" is a valuable friend 
and, as a roommate, he is one of the best.

The recipe? To an easy going, geni- 
al personality add a pair of long legs 
and a lazy drawl. Mix thoroughly and 
season with a dash of red hair. The re- 
sult is Jerry. Somehow we think of him 
as intimately associated with the roar of 
guns and the sound of rippling water. 
The guns, however, are not of major 
caliber or even Springfield Rifles but a 
double barreled shotgun blazing away 
at a covey of quail. And that rippling 
water is that of a stream in the Ozarks 
with a shady spot for fishing. From such 
a placid atmosphere Jerry stepped into 
the high-geared life of the Naval Acad- 
emy and, instead of adapting himself to 
the Navy, successfully adapted the Navy 
to himself, retaining all of the traits de- 
veloped by his native middle west. 

To turn his long Western stride to a 
good purpose, he chose track as his sport. 
This same stride has carried Jerry a long 
way toward success in "faithfully dis- 
charging the duties of the office which 
I swear to uphold."

Not even the big winter back in '40 
could faze this son of Florida ; nor does 
he let anything else interfere with his 
enjoyment of life or his having a good 
time. And if he put half the time spent 
answering the letters of one or more of 
the snare and delusion gender into aca- 
demics, he would raise a considerable 
cloud of dust in the section rooms. In 
other words, he has less than the usual 
amount of trouble with books and wom- 
en. The gym team claims most of his 
spare time, and almost any Saturday 
afternoon during the season you will 
find him picking up a few points for the 
Blue and Gold with his tumbling. Aft- 
er one of the occasional gym trips his 
accounts of that part of the trip not di- 
rectly connected with the meet are a 
source of constant entertainment. 

His varied interests, his appreciation 
of the things that make life worthwhile, 
and his quiet, easy- to-get-along- with, 
manner make Gray an ideal companion 
as well as a fine shipmate.

This is the lad whom we can so easily 
visualize lying on his stomach and coo- 
ing in his cradle, because he's such a 
cute little fellow now. All his cradle 
tactics were learned in Baltimore, but 
when (his phase of his education was 
completed, he migrated lo Washington. 

Rollo's early dreams were the same 
as Charlie Keller's, but Keller learned 
to hit, When visions of a professional 
baseball career tailed, the poor boy was

"Well it can't last forever," and so 
Jason tries to bone a little more ; but one 
of these days he's gonna quit for good 
and settle down the way he wants, and 
the home town looks all right. There 
just ain't no getting around it — he's a

type when the talk gets around to the

the "hermit" does all right for himself.

a varied and competent sportsman, tak-

the going has been tough once or twice, 
he's always come out on top. Nick just 
takes things as they come and does not 
pay much attention to worrying, but 
tell him your troubles and you'll find a 
real friend. It's been fun, Jason.

He looks like he'll never survive when 
he gets out of bed in the morning, wraps 
up in a blanket, and huddles over a

lived all his life where it is warm, to 
come to Maryland is quite a shock.

of his town as his town is of him. Court 
says back in Texas eats and athletics are 
tops. "Rice will go to the Rose Bowl

"Jive and jump" is the music that 


appeals to this fellow and on week-ends 
when he is not at a hop he can usually 
be found listening to the latest Basie or 
Calloway. He is a hard worker when 
he gets down to it. Golf is his pastime, 
but when it's a little out of season a "bull 
session" or a magazine will do the trick. 
Never satisfied till he's at the top, Court 
some day may reach the pinnacle . . .

From the hills and razorback country 
of Arkansas came a lad with a will to 
make a success of his life. Driven by 
hardships and struggles in his attempt 
to get a college education, he brought 
with him the will to learn the hows and 
whys of everything. His afternoons for 
the past three years have been devoted 
to his struggle to master the art of swim-

was not until his last year here that a 
woman was able to conquer him. 

Dave is a man with perseverance, a 
fine sense of humor, and an optimistic 
personality. His greatest thrill during 
his stay here has been attained in sailing. 
For a landlubber, he sure has acquired 
a love for the art of sailing, showing his 
skill not as a coxswain, but as a setter of 
sails. Most of his success along the 
academic lines has been due to his power 
of concentration. His agreeable nature 
and willingness to reason have made 
him an ideal roommate and companion.

though being a manager takes a lot of

an appreciation of the lighter side when

Tom came to us a diamond in the 
rough. The polishing process that he 
lias undergone while here has made him 
a bright beacon on a sometimes dark 
horizon. Many, on first acquaintance, 
think that he was labeled for St. Eliza- 
beth's, but instead was mistakenly de- 
livered here. Yet those who know him 
better find that it is his spirit of exuber- 
ance which makes him appear crazy. 

Tom fooled the people who thought 
that he would become a great athlete. 
He decided that he would devote his 
time to broadening himself socially and 
academically rather than listening to 
the pleas of the coaches. On the side 
though, he keeps busy playing golf, ten- 
nis, sailing, or strumming on his guitar. 

Tom is a ladies man if we ever saw- 
one. Tall, blonde, and statuesque, with 
a flashing smile and ready wit, he is the 
power that keeps several feminine hearts 
beating. The leading contender at 
present is ahead by two cakes. All in 
all, our boy Tom is a regular guy — to 
all a welcomed shipmate.

"Women are a snare and a delusion." 
That is Bob's pet phrase, but he doesn't 
take much stock in his own philosophy ; 
he drags whenever he can't organize a 
bridge game for the week-end. There's 
only one thing that Bob would rather 
do than eat, and that's play bridge. For 
diversion, from bridge, he plays a wick- 
ed game of chess and, during the spring, 
pounds the cinder track and swings 
around the golf course. 

He starred during Plebe Year with- 
out any trouble ; many of his study hours 
helping out his "wives" and classmates 
who don't have such an easy time with 
academics as he. 

Bob's character is well rounded. He's 
likable, has a keen sense of humor, and 
is academically brilliant ; his mind is al- 
ways open to new ideas — the kind of 
mind that's always eager to learn. The 
Navy is going to have a fine officer in 
Bob; he'll make many friends with 
those above and below him wherever

Denver, Colo. 

Milt came to the Academy from the 
"Mile High City of the West" with high 
hopes of becoming an Admiral in short 
order. A dark haired lad possessing a 
marked versatility, he found it easy to 
overcome the difficulties of academic 
life and readily adjusted himself to the 
long grind. He is an enthusiastic sup- 
porter of sports and is always ready to 
lend a willing hand in their advance- 
ment. In his leisure time, Milt is an 
ardent participant in tennis, lacrosse, 
and sailing. He is perpetually prepared 
for an argument and is invariably cor- 
rect. Not being a "savoir" he had to 
work diligently, but was always quite 
amply rewarded. Milt is no farmer 
when it comes to ingenuity either. His 
many contrivances rival those of Rube 
Goldberg and need only a reversal of 
the laws of nature to make them work. 
Milt has ability, inspiration, character, 
and the will to succeed, plus an over- 
abundant storehouse of money-making 
ideas. He likes the Navy ; it will like

If it's a deep bass voice sounding off 
near you, whether it be in the ward- 
room of a "tin can" or on a gunboat out 
in China — before you turn you'll know 
it's "Spence" upholding Iris point with 
die conviction of real authority. 

His friends will always recall him as 
a tall, ambling son of the West, best re- 
membered for that infectious smile and 
pleasant humor, and the enjoyment he 
derives in a discussion, showing his 
friends the fallacy in their argument — 
"spilling the wind from their sails." 

"Doc" began his formal education 
at the University of Utah after several 
months of military school. A few short 
days converted him from a college lad 
to a true follower of the sea, even find- 
ing him hard at work on the business 
end of an oar where he found many 
hours of enjoyment and constructive 

An enthusiasm for the outdoors often 
found "Spence" at the helm of a small 
boat or ketch, and our prediction is that 
someday he'll be listed with 41's "big 
ship" skippers. 

Chattanooga, Tenn. 

Four long years ago, from the sunny 
Southern state of Tennessee, came a 
true Southern lad to embark upon his 
career of becoming a Naval officer. The 
few college years before his entrance 
saved him many a headache along the 
academic line. He still wears no stars 
and boasts no N's for his Southern tem- 
perament exacts of him nothing that 
smacks of labor. Athletic activities are 
lacking except for an occasional strug- 
gle with the rope climb and a dash 
around the track in an attempt to con- 
vince Henry Ortland that the boys from 
Tennessee weren't meant to be amphib- 
ians. Like all true rebels, he has loved 
and lost! Ah! and loved again! He 
has been a consistent member of the 
well known flying squadron for four 
years. Slim is a jolly, happy-go-lucky 
sort and because of this, he has been the 
butt of many a joke. There's never .1 
dull moment when he's around. Hap- 
py's good fellowship and amiable dis- 
position have made him an ideal com- 
rade for our four years at the Academy. 

Bennett, Colo. 

He can tell you all about ranches and 
cows, but that's not all he knows. Play 
a game of bridge with him, talk to him, 
just be with him, and you realize how 
varied his interests are. You might have 
to study him for months at a time for he 
is hard to fathom but sooner or later 
you realize what kind of a fellow this 
Salty is. Aside from his capabilities as 
a student of technology (not literature), 
he enjoys life and sees the responsibil- 
ities as well as privileges thai friendship 
has to offer. He is easy to please, loves 
to read the latest Cosmo, but is not 
what one might call a prom Hotter. 
He gets his exercise on his bunk, in the 
gym, and in Mr. Ortland's class for be- 
ginners where lie stars. He has swept 
out the room for three years (a record 
for any midshipman) and has done ev- 
erything else to make life pleasant for 
others. Studies are a secondary issue 
with Clarabclle — he was never meant 
to be a cutthroat; it isn't in him. 

He just rocks along with the breeze, 
leading a life of ease.

Chicago, III. 

Early graduation enabled Wayne to 
graduate from an institution of higher 
learning in the short period of six and 
one-half years rather than the seven 
years which June Week would have end- 
ed. The first attempt was in engineer- 
ing at the University of Iowa. Then 
an old ambition was realized and lie 
obtained an appointment to West Point, 
but a twist of fate sent him to the Naval 
Academy instead of "Hell on the Hud- 
son." Thereby the engineer from Iowa 
and Chicago became a midshipman. 
Such a change was not hard for him, 
for he has the capacity of adapting him- 
self to whatever may occur, but when 
it comes to forgetting those days as an 
embryonic engineer, that's another mat- 
ter. He has a burning desire to create 
massive projects, to execute with mi- 
nute care to detail any assigned task — 
to get "well done" for his efforts. It's 
mighty hard to stop a man like that, 
but it's mighty easy to remember him 
for that clean cut, natural simplicity of 
character by which we all know him.

El Paso, Texas 
Dick combines the qualities typical ol 
the South and West, yet he does not 
lack that individuality which gives him 
a personal appeal all his own. Though 
his education was in preparation for a 
career in law, he has successfully di- 
verted this liberal background to the 
more technical requirements of the 
Navy. In moments of recreation he has 
become well adapted to a new way of 
living, so that he feels equally at home 
in a boat or on horseback. He prefers 


a wide field of activities, social, athletic, 
and academic, rather than specializa- 
tion — and he receives benefit from all 
these pursuits, because he seeks personal 
satisfaction rather than an effect pro- 
duced on others. What he misses most 

is the desert — sunshine and dry air 

next to that, he would enjoy spare time 
in which to read good books. A sound 
mind in a sound body, adaptability, and 
a knack of handling any situation grace- 
fully — these are his inherent qualities. 
Combined with a sense of humor, these 
should sail him safely across die rough- 
est sea.

Versatile is the word for this suave 
gentleman from the "Deep South," for 
Charlie has the inherent ability to do 
well anything he attempts. His pri- 
mary interest is sailing. The Vamarie 
and the yawls have found him a com- 
petent seaman, while those who have 
sailed with him sense the deep pleasure 
a boiling wake gives him. This love of 
the sea, coupled with the romantic tinge 
of the South, has given him a wanderlust 
held in check for the last four years, but 
intensified rather than diminished dur- 
ing that interval. The only thing strong 
enough to anchor him is a little brunette. 

Literature has provided an outlet for 
the cravings of his spirit, and his many 
athletic pursuits have replaced the activ- 
ity of an outdoor life ; but Charlie enjoys 
a "siesta" as only a Southerner can. 
His vivid imagination is often used to 
construct day dreams that remove him 
from the realities of routine, and this, 
combined with his other characteristics, 
prove him to be intensely alive and pos- 
sessing an enviable capacity to enjoy

A red headed man with a personality 
to fit his physique ... a light Southern 
drawl and ever present smile . . . this is 
John Kirk. His vast number of friends 
both at the Academy and at Virginia 
Polytechnic Institute, where he was a 
medical student, have put the seal of 
approval upon John's happy-go-lucky 
personality. His scholastic record testi- 
fies to his capacity for hard work. 

Although his looks belie it, his tennis 
ability is of varsity caliber and his capac- 
ity for work both mental and physical is 
of a high standard. His unmistakable 
tendency to relaxation has asserted itself 
in that Johnny tends to conserve his 
efforts in his constant pursuit of work 
and happiness. Saturday night is defi- 
nitely not a period of relaxation, how- 
ever, for he attends every hop. 

His manner of telling you that you 
are wrong earns your respect and car- 
ries with it a feeling of his sincerity, a 
characteristic which tells more of this 
genial fellow than any written words.

Lehighton, Pa. 

The first impression most people have 
of Ed is a mental image of him vigor- 
ously insisting that they eat some of his 
chow. It is much more than just a 
taste of food, though, for with it comes 
a good hour's entertainment of laughs 
and jokes. Ed is effervescent, always 
bubbling over with joy. Once get him 
started on his stories of native life in 
Pennsylvania, colored with a typical 
Dutch accent, and you will never want 
to leave. 


There is much more to Ed than a 
good time, though — he's the kind who 
wears well. The longer you know him 
the better you like him. Talk seriously 
with him and you'll soon find that he 
has both ideas and ambition. He's 
bound to be happy in life, for he pays 
dividends to his friends. In return for 
a little friendship he'll give you a double 
payment in pleasure. 

If you don't know Ed, then you'd 
better get acquainted with his pep, 
fun, and enthusiasm. Drop in some 
night on "Edt" and the "kits" and he'll 
tell you, "Veil, I'm satisfied."

What's all the laughing about? Oh! 
It's "Dutchy" telling one of his jokes 
again. His real name is Roland, but 
around the Academy, "'Dutchy" serves 
the purpose. His mission in life seems 
to be either to laugh or to make some- 
one else laugh. 

In spite of his lighthearted attitude, 
Dutchy takes the Navy very seriously. 
He actually cares more for his job than 
many men who pretend to be very seri- 
ous about it. The only time he has ever 
worried was when Tccumseh threw the 
axe at him while he was taking "Young- 
ster" math. The axe missed so here he 
is — still happy. 

What a storm his room is usually in! 
Chow, jokes, radio, and people all going 
strong. He intends to charge admission 
from now on because the room is such 
a circus. He will be like that all his life! 
Will he ever settle down? Well, yes, it 
could be called that. He'll have a home 
and family, but if the kids are like the 
"old man," the house will never settle

Salt Lake City, Utah 

With three of his brothers here before 
him, "Badge" entered the Academy to 
uphold a family tradition. However, 
he got his real inspiration from the nau- 
tical atmosphere of his home on the 
shores of the Great Salt Lake. 

Two years at tile University of Utah 
taught him all the advantages of co-edu- 
cation ; but the work there has helped 
him keep a jump ahead of the academic 
departments. He finds enough time for 
sports, and every season finds him busy 
with something. He has no N's to his 
credit, but not because of lack of effort. 
Coming from a large family, Badge 
is naturally easy to get along with. His 
friendly nature makes the plebes flock 
to him for protection. He aspires to be- 
come another Browning, and has given 
up sleeping through many steam drills 
for writing poetry, but there's no future 
in sight for him as a poet. We like to 
remember him as the cute plebe flower 
boy for the color girl back in '38.

Lincoln, Nebr. 

John entered the Naval Academy the 
hard way — through the fleet ; however, 
knowledge gained at an electrical school 
in San Diego has held the Juice Depart- 
ment in check. Plebe year was a strug- 
gle, but since each exam puts him a few 
numbers higher. Letters may go un- 
read for weeks but exam marks must be 
read while the ink is still wet. Diligence 
and a faculty for being right have given 
him a winning combination. 

Why do women flock around him? 
Perhaps it's his "peaches and cream" 
complexion or maybe it's that wave in 
his hair. Or— more likely— it's because 
of the personality that has won him so 
many friends. 

Next to a good workout, making 
phone calls is his favorite diversion. He 
has been the main support of the Bell 
Telephone Company during his four 
years here. Favorite topic of conversa- 
tion : "The system and why it can't be 
beaten," with concrete examples from 
real life. Favorite expression: "Oh 
all right, just one hand of bridge, and 
then I've gotta study."

Cass came from Illinois, by way of the 
U. S. S. Pennsylvania. He has an un- 
canny knack of taking life just as it comes 
and rarely has anyone ever seen him ex- 
cited or in a great hurry. The "Dago" 
department held temporary terrors for 
Cass plebe year, but even this did not 
upset his composure. With his typical 
statement "They can't bilge me," he 
came through as we expected. Sleep- 
ing has always held its attractions for 
Cass, but not when other recreation 
such as a hop, is available. He has 
never lacked for drags ; in fact one after- 
noon a major calamity was narrowly 
averted when two of the fairer sex paid 
him a visit at the same time. Cass 
smokes more matches per cigarette than 
any man in the Academy, but he cannot 
be considered "Scotch" as his pack of 
Camels is always open to his friends. 
Few of his classmates know him as Reber 
but the name Cass will always remind 
us of the personality and cheerful atti- 
tude that has made our four years with 
him so pleasant.

Grapeland, Texas 

Why "Dead-eye" forsook the Texas 
Rangers for the Navy we do not know. 
Somehow the call of the sea drifted into 
Grapeland and brought him to the 
Academy. That he took to the new life, 
we have no doubts. Of course he has 
had his moments of homesickness, but 
he has the knack of shaking it off by 
sticking his head out in the corridor 
bellowing like a Texas steer, "What's 
the uniform for next period?" 

In academics he has been one of the 
near greats without any trouble. Dur- 
ing the day he always finds time to in- 
dulge in practical jokes, taking or giving 
a good rib equally well. 

Plebe year all was quiet, but at his 
youngster debut he blossomed out and 
since seems most natural with a feminine 
companion. Maybe the expert rifle 
medal he wears has something to do 
with it. 

His only worry is a receding hair line. 
Maybe he will be able to stem the ebb 
tide, but if he doesn't, we will enjoy 
going bald with him.

Clay hails from Missouri, and true to 
form, he must be shown to be thoroughly 
convinced. One must be careful, how- 
ever, not to classify such a state of mind 
as one of obstinacy, for knowing Clay 
will soon make it apparent that this 
characteristic is the natural result of a 
conscientious desire for exact correct- 
ness. In addition, his sincere interest 
and his appreciation of other's capabil- 
ities make him an ideal companion in 
both work and play. 

When Clay finally decided to come to 
the Academy it was after a year of col- 
lege life. He left a lot of friends behind 
him, but his sunny disposition, good 
sense of humor, and ever present grin 
have won for him twice as many. He 
has taken no end of ribbing about his 
short stature, but nevertheless, this short 
stature has not seriously hindered his 
try for athletic fame. With the greatest 
of ease he made the wrestling team on 
his first attempt and in all probability 
he will win many more matches before 
his career is completed.

Pete is one of those Southerners who 
lives up to the distinction of being a 
true rebel. He comes from down Lou- 
isiana way, which is readily apparent 
when you hear his Southern drawl. He 
has built up quite a reputation for his 
ability to always have a beautiful drag, 
and few are the hops that he misses. 

Pete's most outstanding characteristic 
is his frankness of opinion. He is always 
coming out with some wise comment 
which is to the point and usually filled 
with additional touches of irony and 
subtle humor. 

He is fond of all types of athletics, 
but Ms greatest interest is baseball. In 
the spring, Pete can always be found 
out on first base keeping up with the 
best of them and banging out his share 
of hits. 

His life's ambition is to be a flyer. 
Pete believes that flying will give him 
the feeling of personal accomplishment 
and individuality which forms a major 
part of his personality. Certainly no 
one could be better suited than he to 
take up such a noteworthy career.

A man's wealth is estimated by the 
number of his friends, and by these 
standards, Mel Warner is a wealthy 
man. His cheerfulness and carefree at- 
titude make him liked by all who meet 
him. But beneath this carefree surface 
lies a deep determination to have his 
job "well done." 

Almost as transient as a navy junior, 
Ned has lived in Missouri, Kansas, Illi- 
nois, and New York, and finally he has 
come to rest in New Jersey, the state he 
now calls home. From high school, he 
pursued a more stable career by prep- 
ping at Severn for the U. S. N. A. 

Here at the Naval Academy, Mel ap- 
plies himself to the task at hand, sub- 
duing the system. Still he finds time 
to pursue his favorite extra-curricula 
activities, namely : swimming, Rifle 
Team, and sailing. But the above are 
not his only avocations — go to any hop, 
formal or informal, good or bad, day 
or night, at home or abroad, and you're 
sure to meet Mel — guess why? 

Brooklyn, N. Y. 

Often times, the arbiter in our feud- 
ing congregation was our tall, blonde 
representative, affectionately referred to 
as "Wacky." George has been a mem- 
ber of the intelligentsia. Our problems 
have been his and have therefore been 
assured of successful solution. His am- 
bitions are but temporary for the sim- 
ple reason that they are energetically 
pursued and soon realized. One of his 
more lasting ambitions, however, con- 
cerns the age-old subject of bridge. He 
doesn't wish to be a "second Culbert- 
son," but rather a "first Nolte!" 

At this point, it would seem that 
George has missed his calling ; however, 
there was a psychological contrast be- 
tween life on board and ashore that at- 
tracted him — that's the mark of a Navy- 
man. Aside from the sea, you will find 
that George has other haunts. For in- 
stance, should you chance upon New 
York City and thereabouts, try the Ger-

The fact that he is the only Rebel in 
a room full of Yankees doesn't seem to 
have affected this "Tar Heel" from Wil- 
mington, N. C. His quiet easy going 
manner makes unpleasant situations im- 
possible. This, combined with the prop- 
er amount of studiousness, makes him 
excellently equipped for his chosen ca- 
reer. His leisure hours may be few 
and far between, but they are used to 
fullest advantage. His favorite activ- 
ities are camping and boating, but he is 


equally at home in the social world. 
He can always be found at dances or 
parties while home on leave. 

Ned may not belong to the "savviest 
of the savvies," but one thing is certain ; 
he will be striving constantly. On Grad- 
uation Day, he will look back upon a 
difficult task well done, and he can look 
forward to the second stage in the real- 
ization of an ambition held since Ins 
high school days : to become a good 
naval officer.

if there is anything he desires, he gets 
it — or else! Nevertheless, he didn't earn

from his Jersey rearing. He taught 
himself to concentrate by reading Mil-

A navyjunior, and proud of it, Burns 
hails from an Avocado ranch in sunny 
California. He is red-headed and has 
that ruddy complexion of a true Scotch- 
man, which possibly accounts for his 
nickname "Pinky." Burns can't be 
called a savoir, but he did enough book 
pounding to stand well up in the first 
half. Women were the least of Pinky's 
worries, but he never turned up at a 
hop with a brick and he had some 4.0 
pictures on his locker door. 

Wielding a foil for Navy's fencing 
team was Pinky's favorite sport, and 
judging from his collection of medals, 
he could really push a pin. Burns was 
a militarist, and strange as it may seem, 
he actually enjoyed toting a rifle. He 
is the fourth generation to graduate from 
U. S. N. A., a record worth continuing. 

Good natured, happy, always smiling, 
and forever doing his best no matter 
what, Burns fits exactly the type of man 
who makes a good officer.

Bridgeport, Conn. 

Sailor, yachtsman, musician, and 
"connoiseur des Artes gentiles" — That's 
Art. Brought up in Bridgeport, Con- 
necticut, on Long Island Sound, steeped 
in two centuries of Naval and yachting 
tradition, Art has inherited the spirit of 
the seafarer. Since 1933 Art has been 
in the service, following the sea both as 
a first class seaman and as a "gentleman 
sailor" of our Regiment. In life aboard 
ship, Art is at his best. 

But "A. J." is quite the lad ashore 
too. If you want to find the master's 
touch on a violin, or an excellent danc- 
er at a hop, or a lad at ease in the com- 
pany of lovely young ladies, just look 
for Art. While he stands well in his 
class in academics, he has found time 
to ring up some pretty good scores for 
Navy in cross country and in track. 

Art's experience and capabilities both 
ashore and afloat stand him in well in 
the service, and have provided htm with 
the requisites stated by John Paul Jones 
of". . . a capable mariner . . . and much 
more besides."

Golf bag on liis shoulder, pipe in his 
mouth, peacefully ambling toward one 
of his long drives ; that's the way we al- 
ways think of Jim. Radio and golf were 
his chief loves before entering the Acad- 
emy, but aside from that mysterious 
transmitter he built in his first class- 
man's room plebe year, his spare time 
has been spent on the golf course. Jim, 
Lonnie, and Speed, rain or shine — what 
a threesome they've been! 

Jim is easy going, thoughtful, and 
thorough. One of the "fair haired" 
boys of the academic departments, the 
stars have become old and tarnished by 
their long stay on his collar. 

Jim has a common trouble with wom- 
en — either too many at one time or too 
few. When he drags one of his own 
choice though, we'll all be there be- 
cause we know she will be worth meet- 

The small effort he has to put forth to 
keep things under control makes him an 
easy man to get for a fourth at bridge. 
Wherever he goes, Jim won't be hurry- 
ing, but we know he'll get there. 

Pasadena, Calif 

Whenever we hear the phrase, "He's 
all Navy," we think of Ken. His sole 
ambition in life has always been to be 
a naval officer. A true son of Califor- 
nia, he spent his summers as a seaman 
in sailing ships and evaded high school 
by enlisting in the Navy. "See the 
world from a signal bridge" became his 
motto, and while on the Coronation 
Cruise of 1937, he received a message 
that he had passed the entrance exams. 
We called him "reg" Kinney plebe year 
and there were rumors that he took his 
regulation book home on Christmas 
leave. Gym is a favorite sport with 
"Doc," but being a sailor at heart, he 
has each year joined the "Monks" at 
Hubbard Hall and the upper Severn. 
Crew season once completed, he loses 
no time in catching up on missed hops. 
He likes tall girls and knows the tall 
stories to hold them. Not a dreamer, 
he knows what he wants from life. We'll 
miss the determined step in the corridor 
that has told us of Ken's approach.

Lonnie more than lives up to their stand- 
ards. On "youngster" cruise, Lonnie's 
locker was always neatly stowed. Such 
habits are not made in a day. His room, 
locker, and all his gear are always per- 

One might think that such a method- 
ical person would surely be an introvert. 
The converse is true about Lonnie. He 
keeps all his old friends and makes many 
new ones by always speaking to every- 
one and maintaining a sincere interest 
in their progress. Being a "jitterbug" 
at heart, he misses very few hops. 

Lonnie isn't a "radiator club" man 
who depends on the hops for his exer- 
cise. Each spring he is the first one to 
go swinging over to the golf course. In 
the winter, his gyrations on the parallel 
bars keep him in shape. He is diligent 
with his lessons and all he does. Be- 
cause he is such a worker, Lonnie gets 
the most from his recreation, the Acad- 
emy, and life.

Do you see those yawls along the hori- 
zon? A friend of ours is on one of them. 
You've heard the old saying, "The only 
sailor worth his salt is one brought up 
in sail." Dick must have heard it and 
taken it seriously. A fast, thrilling race 
with the "lee rail under" would not be 
complete without Dick's black-haired 
figure in sight. 

Besides being a sailor, Dick is also a 
good listener. He is always ready to 
listen to your troubles and help you 
solve them. Strange thing about the 
talks is that when the conversation ends, 
Dick's troubles are under discussion 
rather than your own. 

Speaking of troubles, Dick has cer- 
tainly had his share. He had both arms 
broken within five months. Because of 
the long time spent in the hospital, he 
had a great deal of work to make up. 
In spite of the adversities, Dick was out 
swinging with the rest of the people 
when the band began to play. Dick 
doesn't take tilings too seriously but he 
likes to do his job well. Such an out- 
look leads to a happy life.

Magnolia, Texas 

This man Tom McWhorter is no dan- 
dy. One does not have to see the Long- 
horn on his tie clasp to realize that he is 
a Texan. Trifles could never assume 
any degree of exaggerated importance 
as far as Tom is concerned. His quiet 
and unassuming attitude is character- 
istic of the Cattle State and enables only 
his closest friends to learn and appre- 
ciate his thoughts and convictions which 
he stands by most firmly. Tom has 
managed to develop an enviable versa- 
tility in interests. He came out of the 
Great Southwest with a true apprecia- 
tion of opera music as well as the reali- 
zation of the affection that a man can 
know for a horse. During his Academy 
career, "Mac" has supported his bat- 
talion consistently in lacrosse and foot- 
ball. Because of his congenial "live and 
let live" nature and his serious tempera- 
ment, Tom "grows" on his friends tin- 
more they see of him. His classmates 
will remember Tom for his familiar "lo 
Hoss" greeting and his untiring efforts 
toward that idealistic goal which he as- 
pires to reach.

East Orange, N. J. 

When Craig came to the Naval Acad- 
emy, one love from his civilian days was 
retained and amplified : an ardor for 
sailing. Having sailed the East Coast 
between Sandy Hook and Cape Cod in 
a yawl, Gloucester fishing sloop, and 
the schooner Tanya, this recreation su- 
perceded all the athletics that he had 
participated in during high school years. 
Those other athletics had been aban- 
doned with the advent of the tobacco 
habit ; which is characteristic of Craig's 
"double-or-nothing" personality — a na- 
ture which is somewhat perplexing in its 
homogeneity and eccentricities. Craig 
is a staunch exponent of a "little bit of 
Old New York," coming from the near 
Jersey side — East Orange. "Knicker- 
bocker town," and all its elements ap- 
peal to him — from McSorley's Ale 
House to the Rainbow Room. Craig 
has accumulated a number of nicknames 
through the years : "Gonk" (of which he 
he is most proud), "Monster," and 
"Speedy" being a few. His natural 
flare toward the immaculate ; his con- 
structive criticism, and tolerant cyni- 
cism ; and his characterizing nicknames : 
by these do we know him.

"You can't prove thai!" — and Stu is 
away on another argument. He does- 
n't particularly care on which side he 
argues, and he asks only an opponent 
and a question with at least two sides. 

Coming to us by way of Purdue Uni- 
versity, where he acquired no little 
knowledge and a Phi Delt pin, Stu has 
not only taken the academics in stride, 
but has also found time for athletics 
(although he's tapered off a bit after 
an active plebe year), Musical Clubs, 
Press Gang, and Reef Points. As ed- 
itor of the "plebe's Bible," Stu found 
second class year a mad rush of copy 
reading, interviewing printers, and wor- 
rying about deadlines, but the excellent 
results proved that the tedious hours 
were well spent. Besides arguments, he 
is fond of good music, "boilermakcrs," 
dancing, and sleep. His dislikes are, of 
course, the system, and also people who 
are prone to consider Webster Groves, 
Missouri, to be in the "West." Possessed 
of a wonderful sense of humor and a 
ready wit, Stu has been a real shipmate.

"Say, I learned a swell new shot to- 
day — see, you're going down the side- 
lines ; you stop, pivot, then. . . ." By 
these words you shall know him — the 
ever flowing talk of basketball and its 
various phases serves to identify Rich 
as no picture could ever hope to do. 
When it's not basketball, it's the com- 
ing week-end with a 4.0 beauty from 
New Jersey, or some new recording he's 
just decided to add to the collection. 

Coming from an all-Navy prep school, 



Wally was far ahead of us plebe sum- 
mer as to "ways, customs, and tradi- 
tions." Striking out contrary to his 
family tradition by not becoming a 
member of Harvard, '40, he was not 
going to let the little ordeal of plebe 
year disturb him. 

The four past years of sharing desk 
and shaving mirror with Rich have 
proved there's nobody quite like him. 
Ever ready to play cards, listen to any 
type of music, discuss a good book or 
play, or just indulge in a plain old bull 
session, he's been one of the best ship- 
mates possible.

Muskogee, Okla. 

Among the last few to enter '41 was a 
young lad from Muskogee, Oklahoma. 
That his knowledge of the sea was small 
made little difference. He was ambi- 
tious and willing to subject himself to 
anything the Navy had to offer with the 
idea that in the end Kirk would come 
out the winner. With this firm purpose 
in mind he spent his four years here, 
not always perfectly satisfied, but never 

Before entering U. S. N. A., Don at- 
tended Muskogee J. C, and both in high 
school and at college he took an active 
interest in the forensic arts, winning dis- 
tinction in both state and national tour- 
naments. As a midshipman, however, 
he has limited his speaking to the class- 
room and to arguing with his friends, 
taking either side of any subject. Ex- 
tra time he spends on the sub and weak 
squads and as business manager of The 
Trident. Keen insight, willingness to 
offer assistance, and ability to appre- 
ciate the other fellow's point of view 
have won Mm the respect of juniors, 
seniors, and classmates alike.

Richmond, Mo. 

Six years ago a young lad in Rich- 
mond, Missouri, was playing a little for 
William-Jewell College, and entertain- 
ing dreams of one day becoming an Ad- 
miral. Two years later he dropped his 
gear in the Main Office of Bancroft Hall 
and into '41 came Otto. 

Since that day Otto has become one 
of our best liked members, for, although 
some have a larger circle of friends, none 
have fewer enemies. His unassuming, 
quiet, good humor, his sincerity and re- 
liability are characteristics which have 
won the respect of his classmates. The 
determination underlying his belief that, 
although he can't beat the system, 
"neither can the system beat him," has 
won the respect of his seniors. 

Outstanding in his personality is the 
rare quality of modesty, for while most 
of us broadcast personal achievement, 
few of Otto's own classmates know that 
he's been a first quarter man every year. 
His activities have been confined to an 
active membership in the Boat Club, 
participation in battalion athletics, and 
extended membership on the sub and 
weak squads. 

Lakewood, Ohio 

Out of the corn and Indian mound 
country of the Northwest territory came 
the Seedskin in the summer of '37. After 
completing high school he sought to pac- 
ify his insatiable desires for higher edu- 
cation at Case School of Applied Science 
in his native Ohio. After a year, though, 
the Navy called, and our little man 
heeded the blast. 

For such a little man, Walt manages 
to have an amazing number of irons in 
the fire. Not content with standing 
way up in the numbers, he shares his 
time with numerous activities. Tennis 



Milwaukee, Wis. 

when the weather in Maryland permits 
and golf in the summer were his first 
loves in sports. A philatelist from way 
back, he delights in finding rare vari- 
eties of some single ancient issue of U. S. 
postage stamps. He sang in "Pinafore" 
and made a lovely little Japanese lassie 
in "The Mikado." He edited The Tri- 
dent and headed the class Christmas 
card committee.

A connoisseur of good food, music, 
and women, Earl has a strong heart in 
a fine body and a will and a determina- 
tion to make good. Humor, generosity, 
and philosophy are his "mental hob- 
bies." Fortunate, indeed, is the fellow 
who shares his advice and good nature. 
Throughout the year you may find Earl 
on the handball court, always rarin' to 
slam that ball for another victory. Foot- 
ball in the fall and baseball in the sum- 
mer are his favorite sports, with plenty 
of swimming in between. Looey can 
put his thoughts into words well and is 
always a welcome guest at bull sessions, 
and rainy afternoons find him and the 
gang gathered around the pick-up and 
radio discussing the relative merits of 
the latest hit tunes. When Earl finishes 
his skirmishes with the academic depart- 
ments, he's headed for the healthy out- 
doors — to the sea or in the air — for 
"wings" are his coveted goal. The fu- 
ture will find this Wisconsin husky 
spending a healthy, vigorous life, being 
the active energetic fellow and an ex- 
cellent shipmate.

Not even the brother Delta Upsilons 
at the University of Illinois could keep 
John from the Navy, and the academic 
departments with all their terrors have 
been unable to get him out. With in- 
terests running from bridge or the latest 
recordings, to handball or the rare oc- 
casions for ice-skating, John seldom had 
time for bunk drill. 

Friendliness is John's keynote, but a 
natural courtesy and consideration for 
others is an equally outstanding trait. 
To ask a favor was to be assured of hav- 
ing his aid, for his willingness to help a 
friend was practically unlimited. 

In his tastes, John is quite definite and 
not easily influenced once his mind is 
made up. Music is his favorite hobby, 
and playing the piano adds to his en- 
joyment. One might also include the 
art of conversation as a hobby, but it is 
too much a habit to be called anything 
else. John will never lack friends, be it 
a companion with whom to stand a 
watch or a pal with whom to make a

From 'way down in Mississippi came 
J. P. with some of the delta mud still on 
him. He left his motorcycle, girl friend, 
and "Sad-dy" nights for Annapolis, and 
when the Academy tried to change him, 
he wouldn't allow it. 

In the beginning of plebe year it was 
evident that his favorite hobbies were 
sleeping and eating. His knock-out in 
boxing didn't faze him, either, for he 
was right back at work developing hooks 
and such. His constant training and 
lightning speed deservedly won for him 
the long coveted captaincy of the box- 
ing team. 

Studying is of minor importance to 
Margie — he thinks it's far better to read 
boxing magazines or just to do nothing. 
He is happy-go-lucky, carefree, and puts 
everything off until the last minute. 
Outstanding in his appearance are his 
pugilistic nose, his rust colored hair, and 
his happy smile. There's never a dull

no matter what he does, he'll earn a

Wallingford, Vt. 

"Ace" came to Severn's shores the 
hard way from the hills of Vermont — 
high school, a year of work, almost two 
years in the fleet, and thence to the 
Academy. He took us under his wing 
second class year and we've never had 
cause to be sorry for this combination. 
Cheerful, easy-going, always ready to 
provide a laugh, certainly one couldn't 
ask for a better roommate. 

Ace never ran into any difficulty with 
academics ; in fact, he proved of great 
assistance to us in such horrible things 
as math and skinny. He spends most 
of his time at the boat house pulling a 
lusty oar for our crew, his greatest source 
of enjoyment. The few odd moments 
spared from studies and crew are spent 
trying to catch up in his correspondence 
with a ready supply of OAO's. Oh, 
yes, he has his woman troubles, too, 
along with his ambitions in the Navy 
and a happy home life. We can truth- 
fully say with our knowledge of Ace that 
they will all be fulfilled too.

Mount Vernon, N. Y. 

Chick descended upon the Naval 
Academy from Mouni Vernon, New 
York, and has given the folks bark home 
good reason to be proud of him. Al- 
ways keeping the academics well under 
control, he has found time to do a loi 
of work in the ring, and woe be unto 
the drug store cowboy who si. iris tossing 
smart remarks his way. One of his pet 
dreams is life in a quiet spot far from the 
disturbing influence of the feminine ele- 
ment. Not putting much faith in wom- 
en as a rule, Chick has nevertheless 
cultivated the acquaintances of several 
very beautiful young ladies — for future 
reference, perhaps! As a great lover of 
modern music, Chick has spent many 
spare hours collecting and listening to 
his set of the newest popular recordings 
which is now one of the Academy's most 
complete collections. Four years with 
Chick and no cause to regret it, for he 
is a regular guy and the best friend, 
roommate, and classmate that anyone 
could ask for. He'll be the same kind 
of a shipmate.

can bet, and he'll take both sides if nec-

aptness, Sanch is one if those fortunate 
savoirs who are always at the top or 
close to it. 

1 1 may be said that he cherishes am- 
bitions : wine, women, song, and a file 
of ease. Besides snaking along with the 
best of them, his present weaknesses 
seem to be bridge, sailing, bii.l w , 
Strauss waltzes, a hankering for other 
classics, and more bridge. Aside from 
these odds and ends, it's fairly safe to 
say that the Navy will be richer by a 
good officer, come Graduation Day.

"You gotta show me," and George is 
not the exception that proves this rule. 
Whether it's nav, math, or women, there 
just has to be a reason in back of it 
all. Rather than waiting to be shown, 
though, he'll usually find it for himself. 
After more than two years at the U. of 
Missouri, studies were never any trouble 
so Arlic's time was spent in conjuring up 
questions which the profs couldn't an- 

Driven to desperation by the Acad- 
emy barbers, who are evidently of In- 
dian descent, he took up barbering dur- 
ing second class year and made quite a 
name for himself, strictly with an ama- 
teur standing but professional skill. 

Women! George enjoyed this subject 
immensely as evidenced by the fact that 
he hasn't missed an informal or a hop 
during the last three years. 

Just to prove the truth of "brain over 
brawn," George indulges in his favorite 
pastime, wrestling with some bigger 
man. No one will forget his willingness 
to help out his classmates — if anyone got 
into hot water, George would either get 
him out or get in with him.

"Hello, you big red-headed Irish-

over his face. In every humor he's the 
same carefree son of Old Erin ; there's 
just something about that map of Ire- 
land that puts you at ease when you're 
around him. 

Tom was the most eligible young man 
in New Lexington, Ohio, but that didn't 
keep him from going to Columbus to 
attend Ohio State University for a year. 
It was in a Columbus drug store that 
he overheard some fellow saying, "The 
Navy needs men!" Two months later 
in the Academy everybody knew Tom 
as Three Star Hennessey ; it's a natural 
for him. 

Bucky Walsh's pep talks drew him 
out for plebe crew, and every year he 
has returned to support his battalion in 
this field. He's there when you need 
him, and if he's there when you don't 
he'll keep quiet. Has he ever told you 
about his troubles? He won't; and so 
far as we know he has none, for look at

a good little man couldn't handle. He 
hasn't had a chance to find out because 
his sunny nature develops only friends, 
and he can't help smiling at his own

He studies enough, but he doesn't let 
it interfere with the enjoyment of life : 
the development of those mighty mus- 
cles, brushing those pearly teeth, and 
dragging those charming girls. 

The Little Man can always see the

a little "wacky," but behind that gay

From the mountains and prairies of 
the West came our seafaring Paul Bun- 
yan, Doc Savage. During the short 
winter season when he is not out for 
some athletic team, he can usually be 
found in Mahan Hall at his favorite in- 
door sport — acting. Diverted from a 
stage career by an appointment to the 
U. S. N. A., Doc is determined to find 
some use for his course in dramatics at 
college — he will begin acting on the 
slightest provocation. He is also known 



for his inability to win at poker, his con- 
tinuous singing, and his wild tales. 
Never worried by academics, Doc de- 
votes a good portion of each study pe- 
riod to the morning paper. 

The aggressiveness that Doc shows on 
the athletic field belies his friendly na- 
ture, and, despite numerous hours of 
extra duty, he has never been down 
hearted. Always ready to explain a 
difficult problem with his own solution 
(worked back from the answer), Doc is

Wafted North by the strong wind of 
'37 that caught us from all parts of the 
United States and deposited us at the 
Naval Academy, tagged with a brand 
new '41, Morgan left the Black Belt in 
Ol' Alabam to try his hand at things 
salty. Fresh from a few years of college 
and with a keen eye and an alert mind, 
"Pierpont" made his way quickly. 

Always in the "know" where academ- 
ics were concerned, Morgan had time 
for other activities also. A radio bug 
and a real "ham," he naturally attached 
himself to the Radio Club. It wasn't 
long before his drawer became full of 
spare parts and a transmitter began to 
take shape in the room. It was usually 
kept in the closet. Morgan's hobbies, 
other than radio, were two B's — bridge 
and bunk. If he wasn't tinkering with 
somebody's radio or looking for a fourth, 
he was invariably holding bunk drill 
and probably dreaming of grits and 
Southern fried chicken. Quiet, thought- 
ful, and discerning, John is the officer 
we want for a shipmate.

Uniontown, Pa. 

He is a canny Scot who always has the 
latest in haberdashery; even his uni- 
forms show the master's touch. Tip has 
the fighting spirit to go with the uni- 
form, too. Youngster year he came 
from behind to lick physics. 

His interests are varied : automobiles, 
music, and professional tap dancing arc 
foremost. He dearly loves to sit at the 
piano and muse over chord modula- 
tions. If called "fourth," the little man 
shows remarkable ability at bridge. 

Prior to his Academy life he had per- 
fected a fast free style swim which never 
was put into use here, as his philosophy 
was that athletics and academics don't 
mix. You'll see him on the golf course, 
in the Masqucraders, at hops, and often 
in the ward room devouring an inoffen- 
sive chocolate sundae. And sing, say, 
he once said that if they recorded his 
voice on some four part harmony it 
would be the best quartet in the world. 
Seriously, though, he'll take any part in 
some barber shop group and his per- 
sonal variation of the baritone part will 
certainly thrill you.

vise a method of solving it — or of side- 
stepping it neatly. His talent for or- 
ganization has led him the coveted 
position of The Lucky Bag Business 

His ready smile and whimsical humor 
make an "Open Sesame" to any door, 
and will carry Ned far, whether in the 
Service or the great outside. Ever ready 
for work or liberty, he has earned a 
place in our memories which will never 
be dimmed by time. 

San Jose, Calif. 

Tom's interest in the Navy began 
about as soon as he could distinguish be- 
tween a battlewagon and a San Fran- 
cisco Bay ferryboat, and time has only 
served to make him the despair of those 
plebes who were called upon to answer 
his varied questions about the service. 

The first tea fights of plebe summer 
found "T. G." already becoming an 
ever present fixture at any gathering 
which included anything but uniforms. 
What began as a diversion has grown 
into a ruling passion. If he isn't at a 
hop it's because he couldn't trade off a 
week-end watch. 

But "Sugar's" life is beset with care 
and anxieties. His soul is at rest only 
when he can fret himself blue and gold 
in the face! However, Ins main worry 
is whether he can achieve his cherished 
goal of becoming a submarine skipper. 

Whatever the future may bring, we 
are looking forward to many years of 
companionship and to even bigger lib- 
erties out in the fleet with Sugar. 


Nashville, Tenn. 

Out of Tennessee comes Sweet Willie 
Williams. He's a Southerner born and 
bred, and woe be unto the loose-tongued 
fellow who speaks of his native state in 
a disparaging way should Hensley be 
around to hear. While not quite a star 
man, Sweet is always just a number or 
two short of the gold collar marks, being 
one of those individuals who if given 
time can sit down and figure out the 
toughest problem. Lazy — yes, but only 
at the right time ; slow — the lads always 
have to wait for him ; a good bridge 
partner — you said it. He tries his hand 
at a wide variety of sports, but, more 
often than not, he can be found in his fa- 
vorite position — horizontal on his bunk, 
deeply engrossed in the current issue of 

Endowed with a great deal of com- 
mon sense, more than his share of good 
looks, a delightful sense of humor, and 
a winning personality, he is sure to reach 
whatever goal he sets out for. And, by 
the way, in case you haven't heard, 
once Willie courts 'em, they stay court-

Berryviixe, Va. 

Jack is a true Virginian, hailing 
from the upper reaches of the Shenan- 
doah Valley; although he traveled far 
and wide with the Navy for a full eight- 
een years before starting an active ca- 
reer, his fondness for fine horses and 
beautiful women stand as indelible 
markers of his true sentiments. Out- 
wardly, though, Jack is a man who, by 
tradition, looks on the Navy not just as 
an occupation, but as the very top of all 
professions for which one cannot hold 
too high an esteem. No mean athlete, 
the possessor of an N star second class 
year, a scholar lying close to the star 
line, and a lad with a profile that causes 
far more than his share of trouble in 
the female ranks — that's Jack. If ever 
you feel the urge of listening to a really 
good tale, drop around and ask Jack 
about Youngster Christmas. As the 
years roll by, Jack will always be at the 
top, despite his fear of becoming a bit 
bald with all its attendant sidelines and 
distracting influences. 

Lawrence, Mass. 

Not the least of Bill's accomplishments 
was telling the second class during his 
plebe summer about the fahg from Bahs- 
tun to Bah Hahbuh. That New Eng- 
land accent was a shock to us farmers 
from the Middle West, and it has taken 
us the better part of four years to get 
over it. Finding more pleasure in the 
cultural side of life than in the muscle- 
building routine of an athlete, Bill has 
a definite feeling for fine music, good 
books, and lively conversation — and les 
femmes. Jarvis is not afraid to try out 
any new ideas he may have, and it is 
practically impossible to shake his con- 
victions. High in this category will 
remain the additions he made to the 
French language in dago classes. 

One characteristic that stands out in 
Bill's makeup is his real interest in any 
troubles you may have — the mark of a 
true friend. It will be hard for him to 
measure up to his own standards of an 
officer and a gentleman. He has already 
measured up to ours. 

Indianapolis, Ind. 

A Culver man and a reformed St. 
Johnny, Honest Bob brought to the 
Naval Academy a sample of Hoosier 
man power. His bull-dog persistence 
has triumphed over the academic de- 
partments despite his dieory that a good 
book and pipe are better than a slip- 
stick and glasses. His locker door and 
mail render false Bob's assertion that 
women are a snare and delusion while 
his drags rate something better than that 
shining proboscis. The tendency to be 
frank at all times and to be stubborn 
when his convictions are refuted have 
gotten him into minor troubles in the 
past, and may do so in the future. At 
any rate, that lump of common sense 
will bring him back to the right track 
in short order. Beneath that typical 
midshipman cynicism lies a set of high 
ideals that will stand him in good stead 
in days to come. He is admired by his 
friends and respected by all those who 
have had contact with him. Bob is fit- 
ted out for a long cruise — he'll make

No one lias yet seen Iiim angry, and 
it isn't likely that they ever will. A 
broad smile in a round face and a stamp 
collector's squint, that's The Kid. He 
puts conscientious and sincere effort in- 
to anything he attempts. There is a 
fine service tradition in his family, and 
The Kid realizes it fully. He has to 
work hard to match the achievements 
of his brothers and Dad, but that chal- 
lenge doesn't worry him at all. The 
Kid's chief asset is a perfect philosophy 
of life which allows him to laugh at 
everything — even his own troubles. He 
still possesses a marvelous ability to 
make things with his hands — a knack 
which was encouraged at home before 
he entered the Academy. He claims to 
be an expert horticulturist — as far as 
raising orchids goes. 

Lacrosse is his favorite outdoor sport, 
and he participates in clubs from stamps 
to French. One ambition that he still 
holds dear is to be perfectly familiar with 
the French language, and he doesn't 
have far to go.

Detroit, Mich. 

Torch Lake was the scene of Bob's 
first nautical activity. When most of 
us were forming our earliest memories, 
he w r as sailing scows back there in Mich- 
igan. The development of this avoca- 
tion led him to Crabtown via the Naval 
Reserve, and in four years he hasn't lost 
the old interest. We'll venture to say 
that Bells would prefer even more to sit 
with a tiller, a pipe, and perhaps some 
feminine companionship than to be bon- 
ing nav. While crew, swimming, soc- 


cer, wrestling, and general rough-hous- 
ing have occupied no small part of his 
recreation hours, his only real hobby 
which can rival sailing is that of tinker- 
ing with mechanical gadgets. His the- 
ory seems to be "build it first and then 
decide what to do with it." Yes, Bob 
has what it takes academically, too. He 
may attack a problem the longest and 
hardest way, but he'll wind up with the 
right answer, and, what's more, he will 
remember how to do it again later on. 
He's off to a good start whatever his

Doug, as a Navy junior, naturally did 
a great deal of traveling before he came 
into the Academy. His globe-trotting, 
which included such places as Hawaii 
and Japan, did much to give Doug a 
natural worldliness and a broad point 
of view. 

Two years without so much as a slight 
quarrel with his roommate is evidence 
enough that it's easy to get along with 
Doug. He had some early academic 
troubles, but before the four years were 
up he had jumped nearly two hundred 
numbers in class standing. His hobby 
is photography. He has mastered per- 
fectly the incomprehensible lingo of 
"pancuronia tic-duosensitivity" (or 
something that sounds equally mysteri- 
ous) — and incidentally he takes good 
pictures. His sport is rifle, and his suc- 
cess with a gun is borne out by the num- 
ber of medals on his full dress jacket. 

Two of his traits have impressed his 
roommate most. The first is his love 
for imaginative fiction, which he reads 
profusely. The second, is his ability to 
enjoy a long shower followed by a good

Smooth is the word for John. Even 
without his patent leather shoes and his 
white silk gloves he could easily be clas- 
sified as the smoothest dancer on the 
floor at any hop — and he's always there. 
This meticulous attention to each de- 
tail is not reserved solely for dress occa- 
sions, either, for Jeff's shoe shines have 
been the envy of every man in ranks 
with him for four years. 

The nickname "Horizontal," which 
he earned by means of his outstanding 
fondness for bunk drill, might lead one 
to believe the person described is lazy, 
if it were not for his accomplishments — 
but the Navy varsity on the tennis courts 
disprove that assumption immediately. 
Tenacity is the keynote of John's atti- 
tude toward both tennis and academics. 
He takes himself seriously in both fields 
and gets results. 

Pensacola has always been Jeff's 
dream and goal. His tenacity of pur- 
pose should carry him on to a realiza- 
tion of that dream when he finds him- 
self cavorting around in the clouds in 
one of the Navy's latest fighters.

As a Navy Junior Spider spent his 
childhood on the move. He loves to re-

at his table in the mess hall ask him ques- 
tions in order to expand his already ex- 
tensive circle of knowledge. The lights 
that often burned in his room before 
reveille marked him not as a "cut- 
throat," but as a man who devoted his 
study periods to extra-curricular activ- 
ities and yet wore stars for four years 
through extra effort and application. •

Plebe summer — the adjutant, having 
published the orders, crosses the ter- 
race to post with the staff. "Brace up, 
Donald Duck!" blurted some classmates, 
and "Duck" he remained. But despite 
the peculiar bend to his knees, Vic has 
the tall build of a crew man. 

Born in Ohio, Vic migrated to the 
Golden West and became a true blue 
and gold Californian. No force of argu- 
ment can ever dint his rabid confidence 
that there is no land like the West — and 
maybe he is right. California climate, 
California Sierras, the University of Cal- 
ifornia, California girls are embedded 
deep in his heart. 

A year on the Cal campus where he 
took "Navy" prepared Moit nicely for 
the real Navy as proved by the stars on 
his full dress collar. Journalistic work 
has developed all his hobbies with the 
exception, perhaps, of his stamp collec-

Piedmont, Calif. 

From Piedmont, nn the slopes of 
sunny California, the summer of 1937 
brought a boy with a fighting spirit, a 
generous nature, and a grin that 
stretched from one famous ear to the 
other. A fluent intermingling of com- 
mon sense with book sense brings Dick 
admirable returns with minimum effort 
and explain his ability to keep up with 
the latest in magazines while still writ- 
ing so many letters that there was ever 
a lack of stamps. 

Overshadowing some high-jumping 
for the track team, football played the 
leading role in his academy life. Start- 
ing the season of 1939 on the third string, 
he finished it with an honorable men- 
tion for All-American end and the team 
captaincy for 1940 to his credit. 

From the youngster filled room sec- 
ond class year, the sound of the belter 
grade of old and modern swing music, 
and his warm and ever present "What 
do you know?" greeting foretold Epley's 
wealth of good records and close friend- 
ships, establishing a mark in acquiring 
new editions of each without breaking 
the old.

Baltimore, Md. 

With a natural smile that broadens 
his thin face, Johnny came to us orig- 
inally from Baltimore. Since then he 
has been a perfect host to his many 
friends, girls and boys alike, in his home 
in Crabtown. Any Sunday afternoon 
plebc year, convincing evidence ofjohn- 
Wirt's favorite indoor sport could be de- 
tected within a mile of his home. John- 
ny is a drummer by hobby, holding 
down the drums in the NA-10. He 
knows the favorite licks of all the "skin 
beaters" since the Indians scared white 
men with their tom-toms. How he can 
study while denting all the furniture in 
Bancroft Hall with his drum sticks is a 
mystery to everyone. As a result of such 
practice, Jose has had a few academic 
difficulties, but he's always come out a 
step ahead of studies. 

Outdoors Johnny uses his tall, slim 
figure to advantage on the tennis court. 
No set-back alters his cheerful spirit and 
easy going ways. For this and for his 
ready smile Johnny will be remem- 
bered by all of us.

"Don't make me mad or I'll tower 
over you." This is Buck's favorite ex- 
pression, reserved for his friends of the 
fourth platoon. He possesses a remark- 
able sense of humor, and, what is more 
it is entirely original. It is a very safe 
assumption that he comprises the max- 
imum in jollity per cubic foot. 

He is extremely well liked for his easy 
going nature and his habit of never con- 
cerning himself too much about the fu- 
ture. This latter characteristic has 
caused him a small bit of trouble in the 
academic hurdles, but Buck has always 
contended that ten days Christmas leave 
is too long for one man anyway. 

He came here from Duke University 
and brought abilities that have seen 
valuable use in his participation on the 
Christmas card committee, The Tri- 
dent magazine, and as first class man- 
ager of the boxing team. His many 
capabilities and undaunted ambition 
will always stand him in good stead. 
The word efficiency is built around men 
like Buck, and for that reason he fits in 
very well with the Navy.

One glance and there's absolutely no

everything from his head to his feet. 
And, in spite of four of those unpre- 
dictable Maryland winters, his share of 
that great leveller— extra duty, and ma- 
p-works, he has kept that charat tei istii 
grin that beams all over his face and 
makes friends among both his juniors

quite limited when he first entered the

come, even to his partly bowed legs.

High, wide, and handsome -that's 
Bill. A conscientious personality makes 
him a likable chap, and though he'll 
argue with anyone over anything, he 
does it and gains friends rather than 
losing them. 

Buck loves gadgets and is very me- 
chanically minded. He delights in 
spending hours tinkering with machines 
finding out for himself how they work. 
Flying is his favorite pastime, and he 
spends his leaves back in Watertown, 
South Dakota, flying a Cub among other 
things. He is also quite a sailor and 

would just as soon spend an after 11 

skippering a yawl or an ice boat. 

Bill claims the distinction of having 
been a radio announcer before coming 
to the Academy -perhaps that's why he 
has such a pleasant voice. Bill sails 
smoothly with the fairer sex and the 
same applies to academics. When the 
going gets tough he just lights up one of 
his pipes and buckles down to work. 
He always comes through.

Harpers Ferry, W. Va. 

Mac was slightly chagrined when lie 
discovered that he'd used half a roll of 
film with the railing of Maryland Cap- 
itol's dome as subject — and upside down 
at that. It seems that a beginner does- 
n't know which gadget on a movie 
camera turns it off. Recent attempts 
with photography have been more suc- 
cessful, and his library now contains 
some really good films. 

Back home at Harpers Ferry High, 
Mac was captain of the football team — 
and, incidentally, his father's pride and 
joy. A trick knee prevented his partici- 
pation in varsity football here, but re- 
pairs were made and he's done loyal 
work on the B squad since. Battalion 
athletics, too, have profited from his 
services, particularly lacrosse. 

From a globe-trotting family Mac in- 
herited a love of travel. That, evidently, 
is as far as heredity went : a language 
teacher for a mother, a college president 
for a father, and two star French stu- 
dents as sisters did Mac's dago no real 
good. Dago, though, was the extent of 
his worries ; he enjoys everything else, 
and everyone enjoys him.

Occasionally John will settle back and 
tell you something about himself. But 
he is modest, and one learns little more 
than that his favorite haunts are around 
Put-in-Bay on Lake Erie, and that he 
attended the University of Michigan. 

From his very first appearance, he has 
managed to keep the study hours well 
filled. The manner in which he gets 
along with academics is exceeded only 
by the way he gets along with other 
people. His study hour was continually 
interrupted by the "bucket brigade," 
seeking his help. At times he threat- 
ened to secure entirely on academics, to 
give more time to his activities. He was 
out for boxing, but a shoulder which ob- 
jected to staying in its joint called a halt. 
The Glee Club, Musical Club shows, 
and the piano were more to his liking. 

In the mess hall John got almost as 
much running as he gave, but he took 
it in great fashion. Being pleasant has 
been something for which he has aimed, 
and that aim will take him places.

"The .Champ" is one of those fellows 
who knows what he wants to do and 
does it. He's naturally versatile and has 
the ability to apply himself to anything 
from academics to touch football. He 
can be depended upon to do an A-i job 
of anything he tries. 

If Freddie says "Is that all?" with a 
disgusted look after you've told your 
funniest joke, it doesn't mean he dis- 
liked it. He'll probably tell it to the 
first person he sees and get a big kick 
out of it. 


He loves to make music with that sax 
and clarinet of his and has held down 
an important spot in the NA-10 since 
plebe summer. Almost anytime he'll 
tell you how hot the 10 is, or what his 
part as fifth clarinet in the West Palm 
Beach Municipal Band sounded like. 

A home-loving fellow, "The Champ" 
would like to settle down somewhere in

living. He knows that the sunshine, the 
folks, and the girl down there are tops.

With a start in the deep South, Vic 
sailed a lengthy course before finally 
joining the class of '4.1. His high school 
record shows a start in New Jersey with 
intermediate stops in Arizona and Flor- 
ida before returning to take his diploma 
from Trenton High School. After high 
school came service in the Fleet and a 
subsequent appointment to the Acad- 

One of the most active members of 
the Boat Club, Vic could always be 
found in the fall and spring keeping the 
ketch fleet shining and seaworthy. His 
many ketch trips furnish endless stories 
on how to learn the rules of good sea- 
manship and the art of navigation— the 
hard way. In the winter, workouts in 
the gym and reading books on philoso- 
phy were his chief pastimes. His intel- 
lectual philosophy changed with that of 
each book, but fortunately he has al- 
ways retained his own natural outlook 
of good naturedness and tolerance.

but with or without the wings, we shall 
all look forward to continued years of

after a brief two years, but in that time 
he acquired a vast store of nautical 
knowledge and a terrific vocabulary. 
Our subject's favorite pastime is hiding 
his light under a bushel, and he has 
practiced this diversion in studies, ath- 
letics, and other pursuits. Numerals on 
his bathrobe tell of his ability with a 
rifle, and one has only to see him in ac- 
tion to be convinced of his proficiency 
at sailing, bowling, or playing basket- 
ball. His loyalty and devotion to the 
Service, coupled with his keen sense of 
humor will make him a welcome addi- 
tion to any wardroom.

The Scotch arc a Draw and bonny 
race, by all accounts, and "Mac" Mac- 
Millan, Scotland's favorite son, stands 
ever ready to substantiate each and 
every account. Just draw up a chair, 
relax while Mac lights up one of his col- 
lection of pipes, each ranker than the 
next, and then hearken as he begins his 
story with a "Well, Hud . . . ." He punc- 
tuates his remarks with smoke rings and 
wins his point by laying down a smoke 
screen from which he attacks at will. 
At intervals through the battle, Mac 
may be seen with the smoke curling 
around his gray hairs. He and his pipe 
never lose an argument. 

Mac has no worries as far .as the Exec 
and the Academic departments are con- 
cerned, but he does worry a bit from 
time to time about his increasing num- 
ber of graying hairs. He gave up pluck- 
ing them long ago when he saw that it 
just wasn't any use, but he still hasn't 
lost the hope that somewhere there ex- 
ists a cure for that "tattle-tale gray." If 
there is, rest assured that Mac will find

Huntington, Ind. 

Remember that song hit of a few 
seasons ago: "The Jumping Jive"? 
Well, that's what Dick used to sing on 
his way to his annual physical exam. 
You know . . . "makes you six feet tall 
when you're five feet five"! You can't 
tell much about a fellow from outward 
appearances, however, and Dick is good 
living proof of this axiom. Meeting ev- 
ery allusion to his size with a smiling re- 
joinder, his good nature seems to well 
from a perpetual spring located behind 
those snapping hazel eyes. 

Dick's biggest weakness, aside from a 
devotion to the mysteries of radio, is his 
love of stories of buried treasure. He 
even manages to link the two with a 
radio treasure locator, a tricky gadget 
which he spends much of his spare time 
planning. Dick has starred on crew, 
gym, and swimming squads. His latest 
sporting venture has been in the field 
of squash, and he periodically takes a 
whipping from his big opponents. Dick 
may be one of the smallest men in our 
class, but reckoning from the standpoint 
of spirit and pep, he's one of the best. 

Chicago, III 

From the graveyard to the Naval 
Academy in one easy jump! That's 
Bill's story. In the summer of '37 he 
was called from work in one of Chica- 
go's cemeteries and told that he was to 
report to the Academy. 

One of the fresh water sailors from 
the Great Lakes with plenty of experi- 
ence in the Reserves, he came to An- 
napolis with a deep-rooted admiration 
of the sea-farers' life. 

Quiet and unexcitable, Bill has al- 
ways had the policy of taking the good 
and bad breaks in his daily stride. A 
very noticeable sense of humor balances 
his otherwise serious nature. 

For a short time both the radiator and 
the weak squads were clamoring for his 
attention. After climbing that long 
rope, however, the latter lost out com- 
pletely, and he shook the former loose. 
Youngster year he worked diligently 
with Navy's sailing team. Bill went on 
to serve as first class manager for that

Bill arrived at the Academy from a 
city filled with naval tradition, that 
same town on the shores of Lake Erie 
where Perry built his fleet. And with 
two years of college plus that back- 
ground of tradition, Bill had a fine 
start plebe year. He wasn't here long 
before we learned to welcome his pres- 
ence for his Irish sense of humor, a sense 
of humor not always on the surface be- 
cause he is quiet and self-contained. 

Plebe and youngster years found Bill 
managing the football team. In the off 
seasons he tried his hand at battalion 
lacrosse. In the line of work that eats 
into precious study hours, Bill did a 
noble job of extracting subscriptions for 
The Trident. 

Willy has a secret ambition — to buy 
a cabin in the north woods where he 
can hunt and fish to his heart's content. 
Seriously he wants to follow the Navy 
even though deficient eyesight will bar 
him from a line commission. In any 
branch of the service, Bill will succeed— 
for he's that type.

Since Joe comes from a definitely 
Army family, his closest friends have 
never been able to figure out whether 
he is the black sheep of his family or 
just a rugged individualist. It didn't 
take Joe long, though, to make himself 
quite at home in the Navy even if he has 
never entirely given up the Army, and 
to him any Army brat is still a 4.0. 

Joe entered the Academy with the 
ideal that there is absolutely no point in 
overworking oneself and after four years 
is still firmly convinced of the correct- 
ness of his philosophy. He would rather 
enter into a highly technical argument 
than study, the favorite topic of his dis- 
courses being the Army and Navy air 
forces. Despite this interest in the air 
Joe did find time to turn in an excellent 
four year job as soccer manager. 

To those of us who have been class- 
mates with Joe for four years, there is* 
no doubt but that Joe will prove an 
asset to any ship and a shipmate whose 
friendship will be cherished.

After spending a very enjoyable year 
at the University of Detroit Jack donned 
the bine and gold uniform of the Navy

of his life at sea. However, after the

in athletics, he docs a little sketching 
and day-dreaming about greater things 
to come.

New Rochelle, N. Y. 

Big Ken has the distinction of being 
the last man to enter the class of 1941. 
It was the day before academic year 
began in 1937 that he came to the 
Academy fresh from the campus of the 
University of Michigan. 

A New Yorker by birth, Sterno spent 
bis childhood days in New Rochelle and 
starred in football and hockey at high 
school. Ken really wants to be a naval 
officer, and his prized ambition seems 
to be that of serving as skipper of a de- 


stroyer. This yearning of his dates back 
to his days of sailing on Long Island 
Sound. He is a natural born sailor, for 
he staunchly holds his own when the 
weather is rough and the ship begins to 
roll and pitch (airplanes excepted!). 
Next of importance to Karloff are his 
athletics. He has participated with con- 
siderable skill on both the football and 
track teams during his four years here. 
Ken is also quite a hand with the 
women. His drags, from the first June 
Ball, have never failed to attract atten- 
tion and reflect credit on his ability to 
pick them.

Manhattan, N. Y. 

Mike is a name that is easy to remem- 
ber, and Mike is a fellow nice to know — 
all of which accounts for his genuine 
popularity among his classmates. Sel- 
dom really serious, his infectious grin 
and cheerful disposition have turned 
many an M. I. T. day into more of a 
"rope-yarn Sunday." Mike keeps the 
plebes at his table forever on the jump, 
but the fact that even with them he is a 
"good boy" is an attribute to his lik- 
ableness. Give him a skag, a radio 
turned down low, and surround him 
with a spirited bull session, and Mike 
will lean back in his chair, cock his feet 
lazily on the desk, and be the perfect 
picture of contentment, for contented he 
will be. 

Mike's philosophy of life is very sim- 
ple, but sound : there's an answer to 
every prob — keep smiling. His hobbies 
conform to his personality : fast cars, 
good-looking clothes, special delivery 
letters, and especially, red-silk P. J.'s.

Canton, N. Y. 

"Hey, Rick! You'd better wear a 
cap to formation." This is one of Rick's 
favorite absent-minded tricks to say 
nothing of his bed-making on the only 
days beds were allowed to be aired. 
These and a few other incidents have 
started many a day off right. Lest more 
be said and one of Rick's outstanding 
traits overlooked, we want to mention 
his most prominent characteristic — his 
unique sense of humor. It's an odd mix- 
ture of far-away Potsdam and big-city 
humor that is almost impossible to com- 
bine, but in him is found the ideal com- 
bination of both. There are always a 
few bad apples in the barrel, but this 
does not phase Rick in the slightest, for 
even if no one else laughs, he'll make up 
for the non-support. 

Women? Nope! Rick's one of these 
independent, self-sufficient geniuses to 
whom the proverbial "womanly inspira- 
tion" is mere hear-say. But then, no 
man's life is completely void of the fair 
sex and Rick, a mortal, topples from his 
aloof pedestal and invariably hits the 
bottom with a comely lass in his arms.

Hold your hearts, girls, here comes 
Jack Bennett, that suave son of Illinois. 

John Edward Bennett, better known 
as "Benjie" to his friends and class-

Evanston, Illinois, as his home. He re- 
fuses to talk about his high school days 
except now and then to mention a love 
affair or two with a dreamy look in his 

A keen sense of humor combined with 
a serious determination make him a 


genial companion. When not busy 
studying or playing basketball, lie is at- 
tempting the complicated job of keeping 
his love life straightened out. With list 
in hand, he sits mumbling, "One, two — 
that makes twelve that owe me letters. 
Why don't they write?" 

But that's only a small part of his life, 
for Jack has been seriously preparing to 
be a naval officer. While he wouldn't 
admit it, he is proud of the uniform he is 
wearing. A keen pride in his personal 
appearance and a fine determination to 
make good will make Jack an excellent 
man for the Navy. 

Elmira, N. V. 

From the frost-bitten foothills of New 
York came a last minute addition to the 
class of '41. While an instructor in a 
girl's camp in the Green Mountains, 
VVhitey received a wire offering him a 
late appointment to Annapolis. He was 
given two hours to decide what course 
his whole life would follow, but has nev- 
er regretted his choice. Having com- 
pleted a year at Syracuse University and 
possessing an abundance of natural in- 
telligence, Jack has never had to worry 
about studies. Wlutey was quite an 
athlete at dear old Elmira High, help- 
ing his team win an Eastern Inter- 
scholastic football championship, but a 
knee injury has kept him on the side- 
lines here. It has also caused Cotton to 
miss his youngster cruise and to spend a 
great deal of his time in the hospital un- 
der the knife and saw. With various 
"mange-cures" in front of him, Jack 
sadly counts his thinning hair each 
night. The gals all think he's cute, and 
we all wonder when he'll tire of beating 
them off and succumb.

"Why, man, out in California we 
have oranges as big as watermelons," 
and "Now back in '33 when I was on 
the school ship down in Rio," or, "It 
won't lie like this on that ranch in the 
high Sierras." One of these remarks 
places Ace in any crowd. If you con- 
test the fust, you're in for a scathing de- 
limit iation. If you show interest in the 
second, you're in for a story about Sugar 
Loaf. If you scoff at the last, he simply 
chuckles. And he has plenty of time to 
build that ranch house in his mind, for 
lie has a strong hack and a weak mind — 
I mean a crew man. 

When formation finds me caught 
short, I hear, "Now don't get panicky, 
Huell." That one slogan, "Don't get 
panicky," tells more about Ace than 
any other. He always seems to get as 
much done as anyone else without ever 
getting steamed up about it. One thing 
worth learning from him is the real pro- 
fessional value of not getting excited, re- 
gardless of circumstances.

called Deacon — mostly because of his 
initials and not on account of his char-

versity, he entered the Academy where 
one- of his fond, and by no means futile,

riding his motorcycle over the country-

too, and the planes based at the Acad-

to see what is going on or what is taking 
off. His minor pursuits, which occu-

A World Almanac, an alias, Webster's 
dictionary, and a daily newspaper are 
the sine qua mm of life with Admiral. 
His solution of most of the many debat- 
able subjects which inevitably arise in 
four yens ol Academy life is "Look up 
the facts." And it is only by that meth- 
od that an agreement between us is ever 
reached. His love of argumentation 
has brought to light much obscure data 
ranging from the latitude and longi- 
tude ofTimbuctoo to the superiority of 
Southern generals during the Cavil War. 
We've learned more than once that tire 
miscellaneous info at his fingertips is 
surprisingly accurate. A guess — hardly 
ever ; an estimate — invariably. 

Spoils are classified as a hobby in 
Admiral's pattern for living. His sense 
of humor would be his redeeming char- 
acteristic if one were necessary. He can 
laugh at both himself and a friend — 
and he usually does! Vet he is basically 
serious, having due regard for the slip- 
stick and the textbook. In the final 
analysis he was a good roommate — there 
is no higher commendation.

Ormsby, if not the greatest, is at least 
one of the greatest super-Snakes in the

passed since youngster year began that 
Ormsby lias not been seen escorting to 
the hops. He and his weekly drag are 
almost as much a fixture in Dahlgren 
Hall as are the guns. Come the Mon- 
day following Saturday and Sunday and 
we have a different man. In Ormsby 
speed, dash, and accuracy are combined 
to give him an average in academics 
just below starring. An excellent power 
of concentration enables him to give 
considerably less time to his studies than 
does the average midshipman. Conse- 
quently, the room is always strewn with 
numerous dry books from which he loves 
to quote, or cluttered with athletic para- 
phernalia of various descriptions. 

Marshall was born in Louisville, Ken- 
tucky, and attended Male High School, 
and until he passed the Academy exams 
he was headed for a well known law 
school. His ambition, however, was de- 
flected only temporarily, for now he 
hopes to be a naval lawyer. Judging 
from his personal characteristics and 
heritage he should have no trouble.

Four years ago when, as a plebe, Bob 
was arranging the furniture in his room, 
he made his bed accessible from only 
one side — the right side. This may or 
may not be the key to his congenial dis- 
position, but it is as plausible an expla- 
nation as any. Of course, it may be an 
inherent characteristic of all long, lanky 
Texans to be pleasant. 

Bob's genial manner has naturally 
won him many friends and given him 
many activities. With a speaking knowl- 
edge of three foreign languages, he is at 


home in almost any branch of the lan- 
guage club. All of Bob's time was not 
devoted to study. He was a charter 
member of almost any Battalion sport 
you can name, including wrestling, soc- 
cer, cross-country, crew, and track. 

Although he heaved a rather deep 
sigh of relief when we buried math, aca- 
demics, like troubles, never have been 
of grave concern to Tex, and this ability 
to see the silver lining is going to carry 
him a long way in whichever branch of 
the service he chooses.

Quiet and silent he was, too, in aca-

evade the catch questions that tripped

strong point, and even the savoirs would

willingness to assist anyone in need soon 
gained him countless friends. Especi- 
ally sympathetic to the miseries of the 
plebes' life, he has been a big brother to 
all of them and is seldom seen without 
one along. The number of beauties on 
his locker door and his daily quota of 
mail are surprising until one gets to 
know Chuck. Any time that there is 
dancing in Dahlgren Hall he will be 
found right there. 

During his spare time he loves to prac- 
tice jitterbugging, much to the discom- 
fort of the men in the room below. 
Chuck emerged first in the race for sun 
tans during second class summer. Other 
interests are swimming, studies, gym . 
workouts, and his old Alma Mater, Elon 
College. An eternal locker full of chow, 
a supply of clean white gloves, and a 
sunny disposition make him an ideal 
roommate. These four grey walls will 
be gloomier when Chuck checks out.

"Bill," as his many friends know him, 
is a native .son of Vermont, in Old New 
England. He is the kind of fellow who 
makes friends of his acquaintances, and 
His acquaintances are many. His ac- 
tivities here at the Academy have been 
varied and interesting ; academically, he 
is of the "savoir" type, but his qualifica- 
tions for such a typing have come only 
through dint of hard work. "Punchy 1 ' 
is an ardent boxing enthusiast which ac- 
counts for the fact that his favorite rec- 
reation and sport is in the ring. During 
the spring season reveille never finds 
him still in bed, but out jogging around 
the yard instead, taking off the extra 
pound or two necessary to make him 
that valuable asset to the lightweight 
division of the boxing team. 

His hobbies arc in The Loo circula- 
tion department, winch lie has man- 
aged, cross-country hikes, and big, long 
black cigars. His conscientious and un- 
tiring enthusiasm for the service is just 
one of the many fine qualities that go to 
make him everyone's personal choice 
for a shipmate.

In the spring a young man's fancy 
lightly turns to thoughts of love. But 
with Chuck it's an all year process. 
The AMOD's have all been his close 
friends and have dropped in almost 
every day with a letter or two. From 
the way things are going Chuck will 
have to remember some of his math and 
si. nt keeping a catalogue, using a ten-to- 
the-nth system to number his letters. 

C. P. gave up lacrosse, in which sport 
he had good prospecLs, to become a de- 
voted Iioat Club member. If you could- 
n't find him, the odds are that he was 
busily working on the kelch, planning 
another dragging trip. 

His first Alma Mater was Union Col- 
lege in Schenectady. He had some 
very hectic days there and never tires of 
telling stories of life as such. Witli the 
complete reversal of form at the Acad- 
emy his only complaint has been, "This 
nav course would be fruit if I could add 
2 and 2 and get 4 every time." Always 
lops with Chuck arc waltzes, ketch trips, 
Sep leaves, and little children.

To know Bob is to have a true friend 
— a friend that can be depended upon. 
This, along witli his leisurely attitude 
and ready smile, makes him a real pal. 
During his leisure time he may be found 
in the gym working on the horse, where, 
by perseverance and hard work, he has 
proved his worth on Navy's champion- 
ship team. Or he may be seen on the 
tennis courts, or sailing down the bay. 
Bob loves boats, and he likes nothing bet- 
ter than a chance to prove his real abil- 
ity as a small boat handler. On the 
archery range, too, Bob is able to prove 
that he frequently hits his mark. Al- 
though he doesn't claim to be a savoir, 
he never has to worry about academics 
— he just takes tlrem as he does every- 
thing else, just as they come. He is one 
man who never complains about the 
"system," for he really likes the Navy. 
This liking for the service is sure to lead 
him to a successful and outstanding

Jim is a real outdoorman and a true 
son of the West. Deep down in his 
heart is ever the longing and yearning 
to roam through the canyons and over 
the hills of sunny California, gun in 
hand, ready to shoulder and fire at the 
distant sight of that pair of horns which 
thrills the nerves of every huntsman. 
Much of the evening's study period is 
spent in the wilds of that Western state 
rather than in the grim realities of the 
next day's lessons. But Jim can afford 
to dream, for he has been free from aca- 
demic worries ever since he threw away 
his French grammar. 

His love of action and outdoor life 
have made him an active participant in 
athletics. Each afternoon finds him 
working hard at one of those sports in 
which his tireless energy and persever- 
ance have won many points for the 
Gold and Blue. May he shoot as square- 
ly when behind the guns of the Fleet as 
he has here with his tennis racket, his 
epee, and with his classmates.

An Army Brat, Bob is another of our 
more cosmopolitan classmates. With 
the help of letters from home, the World 
Almanac, World Atlas, and the Army 
Orders in the morning paper, he man- 
ages to keep fairly well up with his legal 
residence. As the originator of the 
"Powder River" yell here at the Acad- 
emy, we first connected him with Wy- 
oming where he put in two happy years 
as a college joe at the State University. 

During those two years at Wyoming, 
Bob had quite a diversified curricula of 
academics, sports, and social life. Being 
naturally bright, he could fortunately 
turn a great part of his energies to the 
latter two. He labored through two 
seasons of football in Wyoming's highly 
rarefied atmosphere. Along social lines, 
Bob has succeeded in blending the favor- 
able characteristics of both Snake and 
Red Mike. 

Here at the Academy, Bob's academic 
abilities have stuck by him, and in the 
fall he's usually with the battalion cross 
country squad, or if it's spring, his in- 
terests turn to baseball. His witticisms 
are one big cause for his host of friends 
among his classmates.

When Jack was still in Georgia, where 
battleships are seen only in newsreels, 
he decided that the life of a naval officer 
was the one he wanted, and in spite of 
the rude awakenings to the fact that all 
is not a bed of roses in the Navy — suf- 
fered during nearly four years in Ban- 
croft Hall and the training squadron- 
he still likes his choice. Since Jack had 
had previous experience with military 
discipline at The Citadel, he was seldom 
in trouble with the Executive Depart- 
ment, but Nav was something else, for 
one of his best fixes was an unsat on the 
Nav exam. However, by dint of hard 
work when it was most needed he man- 
aged to escape from their clutches and 
even to jump some numbers in the pro- 

Because of his loyalty to his friends 
and his willingness to learn, Jack is cer- 
tain to advance to a high rank in the 
Navy and to acquire many more friends 
during his career. May he have the 
best of luck wherever he may be sent.

Born in Washington and reared in 
Navy towns on both coasts, Dave settled 
down here for a four-year tussle with 
the Academic Department. With a 
happy-go-lucky air, a keen sense of hu- 
mor, and a naturally pleasant disposi- 
tion, he is usually on hand to take an 
active part in any kind of a session. 
Once converted (Red Mike to Snake), 
Dave never extended his bunk drills in- 
to the week-ends. Bunk drill is defi- 
nitely his chief diversion, but the football 
season always finds him hard at work in 
a manager's bertli which earned for him 
the position of first class manager. No 
doubt he will manage to find a place in 
the Supply Corps and follow his Fath- 
er's footsteps to success. Fishook has 
his own ideas on things in general. You 
can argue with him about any of these, 
but without avail. Along with these, 
he has determination which will enable

which he wants, and is sure to enjoy.

Milwaukee, Wis. 

As far back as Chuck can remember 
he had always had as his goal West 
Point, but fate decreed otherwise, and 
early one June this rosy-checked Wis- 
consin lad passed through the gates of 
Annapolis. Since then Chuck has been 
all-Navy and he does not regret the 
change in plans. 

In years to come Chuck shall prob- 
ably be remembered by his classmates 
as a tall, good-natured chap who used 
to squint at eye charts. We certainly 


shall remember along with other things : 
long bull sessions after taps, a weakness 
for hamburgers on Sunday afternoons, 
a plebe tea fight second class summer. 
Dahlgren Hall knew Chuck not only 
as a basketball player, but also as a 
familiar figure on hop nights, usually in 
search of his popular drag but neverthe- 
less thoroughly enjoying himself. While 
here he has made an enviable record for 
himself in athletics as well as in other 
activities, and despite these numerous 
pursuits Chuck has managed to stand 
high in his class with a minimum 
amount of studying.

Equally at home in the parlor, in the 
juice lab, or on the basketball court, the 
Slugger is one lad who doesn't let the 
trivialities of everyday life d'.sturb his 
calm. If someone told him that Han- 
croft Hall was burning clown he'd slowly 
turn a fishy eye and say in a flat voice, 
"Yeah?" But to see him dazzling the 
sweet young things .11 the hops in Dahl- 
gren Hall one would never think that 
there stood the phlegmatic enigma <>l 
'41. He is one of the gifted few who 
study little, enjoy life to the fullest, and 
yet stand high in the numbers. This 
Manhattan boy is a great fellow to get 
along with, too, because he's neat, 
sweeps the floor, has no vices except 
chewing his fingernails, and makes good 
bacon sandwiches. 

There's no doubt about Bill's making 
good after graduation if it's true that 
life is full of "systems" ; he'll shine in all 
his pride and glory with new worlds to 
conquer and new systems to beat. You 
can't beat a fellow like that!

During his three years in the fleet he ac-

This frivolous Frenchman, because of 
his jolly good humor, lias many friends. 
Never one to consider academics too 
seriously, Rusty won out through per- 
sistent application at exam time. In 
encounters with the Executive Depart- 
ment, he was consistently the loser, win- 
ning his Black N youngster year. 

Too small for varsity squads, Rus en- 
gaged in battalion football, basketball, 
and baseball. His remaining spare time 
was spent in Boat Club activities, for he 
possesses a love for the sea born of ex- 
perience in the fleet. 

He tussled with nearby friends any 
time he was challenged. With his will 
to win and sturdy bow legs, Rusty ac- 
quitted himself well. A quiet, modest 
manner made him a good conversation- 
alist. That's one reason numerous drags 
enjoyed their week-ends as his guest. 
Smooth dancing resulted not only from 
his natural ability and consistent prac- 
tice at hops, but from repeated private 
"jam sessions" in his room. 

Definitely an enthusiast, Rusty always 
takes keen interest in anything new or 
exciting. As an outlet for his enthusiasm 
he hopes to become a naval aviator.

Windy entered the Academy from 
the Marine Corps. Originally he's just 
a big lad from the deep South, and is 
truly representative. He loves that good 
old drowsy feeling, but, when there is 
work to be done, he becomes a picture 
of activity. He can study best with his 
shoes off and one leg thrown across the 
corner of the desk. Happiest moments 
for Herm are those spent as leading con- 
versationalist in before-evening-study- 
hour sessions, and it is probably in this 
role that his many friends will remember 
him. "He should have been a lawyer," 
they say. If you hear any of the follow- 
ing phrases, you can turn around and 
know that Windy's there: "Jeepers 
creepers. Got any chow? Now, you're 
a bit misinformed there." 

Claude is quite accomplished with the 
fair sex, but as he leaves the Academy, 
his world involves solely the service and 
one very charming young lady named

ous, amiable, and a real officer and 
gentleman — that's Herm.

With the firm belief that "Sherman's

plebe summer aches and pains were

tinued through plebe and youngster

Rebel likes to sketch, and with "noth- 
ing much, but you get the idea," he 
skipped from cartoons to his pride and 
joy, "The Log's 'Liberty' " Valentine

not be treated lightly, twelve pages

"When the roll is called up yonder 
I'll be there" might well be Joe's theme 
song ; the least mention of so prolific a 
subject as aeronautics and he invariably 
chimes in with a long tirade on the ins

courts, or playing baseball — and, if you 
ever invaded the realm of the fellows

"Never stand when you can sit ; never 
sit when you can lie down." Relaxa- 
tions and rest are foremost among Ed's 
musts. He has managed to catch more 
than his share of winks and still main- 
tain satisfactory marks. Ed is a very ac- 
complished dancer and could no doubt 
have more than his share of drags, but 
he thinks that dragging over the entire 
week-end is burdensome and quite a 
bother. Even so, he usually shows up 
at every hop. 

"Torso," as many call him, hails from 
the rock-bound coast of Maine, and he 
has always been proud of that fact. He 
maintains that there is no comparison 
whatever between the hills of Maryland 
and the lovely mountains of his home 
state. He's a quiet, unassuming fellow 
who has many friends and most of them 
regard him as their confidant. He plans 
to enjoy life wlrile he can. He doesn't 
intend to take life too seriously and 
claims that lie might even remain a 
bachelor — a point upon which his friends 
will immediately disagree.

His friends call him Frenchie. A few 
of his very close ones, whenever they 
wish to attract his attention, call him 
"Frog" whereupon Bob is seen to cringe 
ever so slightly. From deep in the White 
Mountains, Bob staggered into Wash- 
ington looking for an appointment. The 
big city sort of stumped this mountain 
lad, but he got the appointment and 
there ended his happy days. From that 
day on his favorite and most consistent 
phrase has been, "I don't like it here." 
His good looks have attracted much at- 
tention and recently an officer was heard 
to remark, "Just what do you do with 
that cold cream, Mr. Durette?" 

When not complaining about the sys- 
tem, he can be found either playing foot- 
ball or getting in shape and meanwhile 
muttering such nothings as, "I think I'll 
cut down on the skags" — which he never 
does. Frenchie's ambition is to be sub- 
jected to some more of that Parisian 
culture and— oh, yes — his pet peeve — 
don't call him sailor — that is if you 
don't want 185 pounds of wildcat all 
over you.

Pasco, Wash. 

Rolling out of Pasco Basin, Mac 
brought to us a supply of yarns that are 
forever flowing from behind that lov- 
able smile of his. Often has been the 
time when Arthur has made the young- 
ster's eyes gleam with passion over those 
tales of "Now When I Was in College." 
Although, we wonder at the Scrouch's 
stories, we can readily understand his 
love of life from the manner in which he 
meets it. That knowing and confident 
smile gives us an idea that "McGooch" 


must have been quite a character in his 
old haunts. "The man most likely to 
succeed" they dubbed him when he left 
for Washington State, and although he 
has been christened a bit more during 
three years at the Academy, Mac's ex- 
ploits are not unknown, for the "Hot 
Foot" is never a man to turn a good 
laugh down, nor a party at St. Johns. 
After a vigorous week-end, the 
"Scrouch" spends most of his time hori- 
zontally reclined, talking over escapades 
with "Weesky." Companionship is both 
his greatest essential and quality.

Tarboro, N. C. 

Ruff came to us fresh from the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina with, what he 
thought, enough knowledge to set this 
place on fire. A couple of close calls 
plebe and youngster year, however, 
served to cool him off a bit. The ex- 
ecutive and academic departments have 
failed though, in entirely killing that 
"college Joe" spirit. 

A liberty hound, Rabbi is always the 
first ashore and is already securely es- 
tablished when the lesser enthusiasts 


finally arrive. By no means a Red Mike, 
a "crab" has been his favorite diversion. 
Yes, sir! — not a bad lover. The exec, 
department nearly scuttled him once, 
though, when the D. O, caught him 
doing some remote control courting via 
telephone at three o'clock in the morn- 

Things to watch out for in Mechushla 
are: don't believe half of the scuttlebutt 
he puts out; don't bet with him; and 
don't offer him any of your chow. He'll 
always do the unexpected—never a dull 
moment. Add all of this together and 
what have you got? That Southern 
Tarheel, Ruffin, a darn good roommate.

Baltimore, Md. 

"Sleep and the world goes round." 
That's Vic's favorite quotation, and it 
adequately explains why he's always 
busy. Every afternoon while his class- 
mates are taking life easy or making up 
for a bit of lost sleep, Vic can be found 
engaging in a game of football or la- 
crosse ; and being one of the larger mem- 
bers of the first platoon, he succeeded, 
even as a youngster, in making the var- 
sity squads in both sports. It is on the 
week-ends, though, that Vic really ex- 
cels, for he is never without a drag, 
blonde or brunette or red head, from 
points North or South, and rating any- 
where from a 3.5 to a 4.0. 

Coming from nearby Baltimore, An- 
nie had two strikes on him, when he en- 
tered the Academy, but he managed to 
overcome that and in spite of a tussle 
with youngster dago he's still with us. 
Although the bane of the plebes' ex- 
istence with a bellow that makes them 
quake, he is, as his classmates have 
learned, quiet, good natured, and a wel- 
come addition to any group.

Ft. Mitchell, Ky. 

"High School Harry" we called him 
that unforgettable summer when we 
were insignificant. Little did we real- 
ize what lay behind that innocent ex- 
pression and that slight build of the 
youngest man in '41. But when aca- 
demics came we started to struggle while 
old Teddy just coasted along. When 
the end of that long lonely year came 
we all found ourselves "junior" to our 
"High School Harry." Of course the 
name was soon dropped! So he went 
as the years passed by, and although 
three or four years younger than most 
of us, he distinguished himself not only 
in studies but in that ancient sport of 
running. Yes, that slight build carries 
him over five miles or so in an astound- 
ingly short time, a mere matter of 
twenty-five minutes! 

Besides being the captain of Navy's 
1940 Cross Country Squad, Ted also 
held up the glory of the Naval Academy 
milers on the track team. Yep, equally 
as fast on the track as he is on the slip 
stick— a true mark of an athlete and a

Maplewood, N.J. 

Jack left the serene countryside of 
Maplewood, New Jersey, to enter a life 
replete with bells, formations, and ac- 
tivity. Academics offered him no dilli- 
culty, but the rope-climbing in the gym 
was not easy. Edgar consistently shoots 
expert at the rifle range without extend- 
ing himself. Music holds great lure for 
him, be it Beethoven's Fifth Symphony 
or the classic swing of Artie Shaw. On 
sunny afternoons you could find him on 
the tennis courts smashing the ball over 
the net in Don Budge style. 

The possession of a cheery smile and 
a rather restricted carefree attitude have 
earned him a host of friends both at the 
Academy and at home. The advent of 
leave always found J. C. hugging the 
inside rail for that homeward stretch, 
while the resumption of classes gave us a 
different person — a midshipman weary, 
homesick, and even at times lovesick. 

Mis genial smile and wholesome wit 
have made Edgar one of '41's outstand- 
ing personalities, and we'll be watching 
for him to sprout those coveted gold 
wings of a naval aviator. 

Jersey City, N. J. 

Without a doubt Ed's entrance into 
the Naval Academy was unique ; he was 
a senior in high school when he re- 
ceived his appointment. He immedi- 
ately retired from school and boned 
his entrance exams. Ed claims if he 
ever bilged out, he would be out in the 
world without a high school diploma. 

Often has he cheered up a dreary 
class with moments of diversion. His 
classic wit is unmatched in '41. His 
quiet devotion to the service has been 
proved time and time again in the in- 
numerable bull sessions he has perpe- 
trated. One of the formulae which he 
expounds is "Good temper is like a 
sunny day ; it sheds its brightness every- 

Ed's ambition is to become a naval 
attache at some foreign station, prefer- 
ably Russia or Japan. His ability to 
cultivate friendships and maintain them 
is indeed a gift to which not too many 
have access. Without reservation we 
can say that he will positively attain his 
ambition and prove an invaluable aid 
to the great diplomatic corps which 
serves our nation. 

Yakima, Wash. 

This short, blond, kinky - haired 
"Clam-digger" was born and raised in 
the fertile Yakima Valley where grow 
the most luscious apples of the State of 
Washington, and woe be unto him who 
attempts to belittle the apples or the 
state. He tells the most fabulous stories 
about his early life and his experiences 
in the fleet. No doubt he improved his 
imagination as a bluejacket, but Curley 
has a natural "gift of gab." 

At the end of plebe year his first class- 
man willed him the job of regimental 
Snake, which he faithfully executed un- 
til June Week of youngster year when 
he met his O. A. O. The things he en- 
joys most are good bull sessions and 
regimental hops. He claims he has 
never missed a liberty to which he was 
entitled and says he never will. 

Curly never worries. Even in the 
middle of two re-exams his smiling face 
made the room seem like a little corner 
where we could be ourselves despite the 
system. He is one swell roommate but 
an even better friend and pal.

Litchfield, Minn. 

A true son of Minnesota as even the 
name shows is Robbie, but to start a 
veritable war one need only suggest that 
the name is Swedish. He claims to be 
Irish and backs his statement with a 
curly crop of dark red hair. First as- 
piring to follow his father's footsteps and 
become a Navy "doc," Robbie gave 
that course up to enter the four gray 
walls. The Hellcats find a ready de- 
fender in Jughead, and he rises to do 
battle with any who sing their faults. 
Without doubt his desire to rest has kept 
him on the weak squad these four years. 
Of course he could pass the test, but 
running just isn't in his line, and besides 
a ship is small and you can't run far, 
and being an officer and a gentleman, 
one shouldn't run— so go his arguments. 
His greatest hobby is collecting "dope" 
mostly bad and spreading it freely 
about. In any bull session you can hear 
his booming voice, and he's always 
ready for a healthy argument.

San Antonio, Texas 

Hailing from the plains of the Great 
Southwest, Quentin was at first a bit 
mystified by deep water. Undaunted, 
though, this Texan set out to conquer 
the rolling swells and choppy whitecaps. 
He joined the Boat Club. Later he saw 
the light and turned to yawl racing. 

Another diversion of Quentin's was 
photography, and he knew his cameras, 
lights, and angles inside and out. He 
was a mainstay of the movie gang, and 
he ran off a good many of the Tuesday 
evening newsreels and comedies. Sun- 
day afternoons the Smoke Hall infor- 
mals were under his supervision, and 
you could always find him sitting be- 
hind the record changer with a pipe in 
his mouth smoking up his wife's tobacco. 

A good sense of humor and a striking 
personality will make Quentin a good 
man in anyone's crew. His prized am- 
bition is to startle the yachting world 
with a new style spinnaker sheeted to

Philadelphia, Pa. 

From the big city of Philadelphia 
came H. Z. Miller to give his all to the 
Navy. Harry spent his pre-Academy 
days attending Penn Charter, where he 
earned awards in both scholastic and 
athletic activities. 

H. Z. is a big man, but he lias no 
trouble at all moving his bulk in high 
gear on the basketball floor. He's in 
high gear, too, whenever he meets you 
— he is always the first with the latest 
scuttlebutt, and once in a while it's 
good dope too. Few men can work out 
morning and evening star siglils faster, 
or drag as many good looking girls, 0] 
boast as long and varied a list ol friends 
as Zilch. Even his classmates gel .1 bil 
dizzy just watching him when Zeke 
starts his rapid whirls and fancy dips on 
the dance floor. 

If you want someone who will weep 
with you over your tale of woe or to 
laugh with you in recollection ol sunn- 
prank, jolly, good-natured Harry is the 
man lo find, for he's a good companion 
for anything on or off the schedule.

"Canton, the city of diversified indus- 
try!" "Canton, the home of the Tim- 
ken bearing!" ''Canton, with its 223 
manufacturing centers!" Truly an 
amazing city, if we are to believe its na- 
tive son and propagandist extraordi- 
nary. As a mere beardless youth, Al 
dreamed of becoming the Steinmetz of 
the chemical industry. To achieve his 
end he entered the engineering depart- 
ment of the University of Alabama. In 
a weak moment Al took a competitive 
examination for appointments to West 
Point and Annapolis. Winning both 
and hearing that the U. S. N. A. offered 
a tougher schedule, he characteristically 
chose the latter. 

Willing to tackle anything, he dove 
into the pool during plebc summer to 
take the required tests. But one thing 
worried him — he couldn't swim a stroke. 

He is quiet, philosophical, perhaps a 
trifle bashful, but nevertheless, when the 
occasion arises, Al is not to be found 
lacking in savoirfaire. Because of his re- 
tiring nature he may seem a bit hard to 
know, but those who have pierced this 
cloak of modesty number Al among 
their most valued friends.

Asbury Park, N. J. 

From Asbury Park, New Jersey, came 
this member of the class of 194 1. Re- 
clining in his chair, tilted back on two 
legs, puffing on his favorite pipe with a 
book on his knees is perhaps his favorite 
post for studying, Always savvy enough 
to stand fairly high in the class without 
worrying, he still found time to engage 
in athletics — football in particular. Be- 
fore evening chow he can usually be 
found in Smoke Hall defending his lau- 
rels as a first rate ping pong player. 


Saturday night finds him in Dahlgren 
Hall, where he always has a host of 
friends of the fairer sex. Perhaps the 
expression most characteristic of him is 
iIk line heard between 9:00 and 9:30 
almost every morning, "Did my peanuts 
come yet?"— or leaning out of the win- 
dow calling, "Hey Rufe, let's go to the 
canteen!" To sum up Brill, he loves his 
peanuts, he knows his books, he loves 
the Navy, but above all he loves his 
bunk. So we say good-bye to Brill and 
know that he will go on to make even 
more friends in the fleet than the many 
he has already made in the Academy.

Since neither of his sisters seemed 
likely officer material, Bud was destined 
to carry on the traditions established by 
his Father. Sailor suits and discipline 
became the order of the day, but no 
amount of parental admonition could 
prevent Bud's escapades that became 
the talk of stately old Scarsdale. 

At the Academy, it soon became evi- 
dent that the terrors of plebe year were 
non-existent for Bud. Born with a gift 
for oratory, he could talk would-be per- 
secutors out of anything. Furthermore, 
soccer, boxing, and track kept him busy. 
Then, shortly before June Week he met 
the O. A. O. and dreams of a little white 
house filled Bud's mind and nearly 
caused his academic downfall, but they 
reckoned without his fighting spirit. 

Youngster year left its mark on Bud. 
Where humorous yarns had amused his 
companions, sober arguments sold Tri- 
dent advertising to local businessmen. 
He began to salt away the "monthly in- 
sult," and the Ring Dance brought the 
miniature for the O. A. O. "Now," 
says Bud, "the little white house is just 
around the corner!"

St. Ignace, Mich. 

"... and WOW, you should see the 
fish we catch up there!" Hiram never 
tires of extolling the virtues of the rug- 
ged lake country of Michigan's upper 
peninsula. Just why he became a salt 
water sailor we can't say, for he used to 
navigate around Lake Michigan and 
would have undoubtedly become a first 
rate lake boat Captain. To this day he 
prefers the taste of fresh to salt water. 

He will probably go down in Acad- 
emy history as the only man to have cap- 
tained a small bore team without par- 
ticipating in a single match. Originally 
of '40, he relaxed in the hospital his 
fourth year with a tenacious case of 
jaundice, causing his matriculation into 
'41. He is definitely a sandblower, ex- 
periencing greatest difficulty in keeping 
in step marching to classes. And who 
can forget those large, soft eyes with 
which he could fascinate anyone? 

We can find nothing negative in Hir- 
am's character whatsoever, except per- 
haps an uncanny memory for nickel 
debts and a discouraging ability at crib- 
bage. Otherwise he's our idea of the 
perfect roommate.

In 1934 Andy left high school and de-

than look at the Pacific from the Cali- 
fornia Coast. But it was not to last ; 
early initiated into the mysteries of the 
missing day, Andy sailed over the 180th 
meridian and headed for the Asiatic 

After an interesting (from all ac- 
counts) year, Ling Po packed his Ditty- 
bag and sailed back, headed for the 
Naval Academy where he found a berth 
with '40. But, with graduation in view, 
he took a P-work in the physics of an 
irresistable force meeting an immovable 
object and emerged from the hospital 
only in time to help '41 through then- 
short first class year. 

Two things will cause Andy to light 
up like a lamp— a dancing lady and a 
broken radio. Whatever else he may 
be, he is not a Red Mike. His biggest 
joy, however, is wiring gadgets into 
squawking radios and those whose ra- 
dios have undergone his experimenta- 
tion will testify that he's an expert radio-

. . . Yes . . . every minute of the eighteen months that 
have been employed in producing this, the 1941 Lucky 
Bag, has been a pleasure to us. 

The contacts, the possibilities involved in planning, the 
work carried on from Annapolis to Chicago to Raleigh, 
and the feeling that we were contributing in some degree 
as patriotic Americans by producing the Annual in 
January instead of June, to meet the demands of a class 
graduated early so that they can aid in the defense of 
their country. 

We wouldn't have missed it for anything.

with Floating Chamber 

CALIBER .22 Long Rifle 

The New COLT Service Model ACE is designed to provide 

economical and efficient training of military shooters who i 

later shoot the Government Model Automatic Pistol. Built 

on the same frame as the .45 caliber Government Model . . . 

the Service Model ACE features the ingenious Floating 

Chamber Mechanism which produces a recoil 4 times greater than the regular AG 

Thus the shooter is trained with an arm that allows him to change later to the heavier 

caliber pistol without the additional recoil being noticeable. Because of the saving 

in ammunition costs, the Service Model ACE will pay for itself in a short time. 

Ammunition: .22 Lung Rifle, Regular, High Speed or High Velocity. Magazine Capacitjl 
10 cartridges. Length of Barrel: 5 inches. Length Over All: &% inches. Action: Hand- 
finished. Weight: 42 ounces. Sights: Fixed ramp front sight. Rear sight adjustable for 
both elevation and windage. Trigger and Hammer Spur: Checked. Arched Housing: 
Checked. Stocks: Checked walnut. Finish: Blued.

Westinghouse marine equipment is proved in service 
— dependable and economical under all conditions. 
That's because experienced Westinghouse engineers 
have built in all requirements for sea duty. 

Over two million shaft horsepower of Westinghouse 
Geared Turbines alone have been installed in U. S. 
vessels, and. as with olher Westinghouse installations, 
reports prove outstanding serviceability at all times. 

Constant research and development in steam and 
electrical apparatus make this exceptional seaworthi- 
ness possible . . . and give designers concrete proof 
of Westinghouse preparedness to meet all demands.

THERE'S nothing else like it in the world. 
Nearly forty thousand owners are unanimous 
in their enthusiasm —after some hundred 
million miles of driving. More than just a 
fluid coupling, even more than a completely 
automatic transmission. Hydra - Matic 
Drive gives you all the advantages of both. 
You never press a clutch pedal because 

there's no clutch in the car. You never shift 
gears because shifting is automatic. And 
you get faster pick-up, smoother performance 
and substantial savings on gas. Oldsmobile 
offers Hydra-Matic Drive, optional at extra 
cost, in six great lines of cars for 1941. 
See the new Oldsmobiles at your dealer's 
—then try "no clutch, no shift" driving!

America needs airplanes, engines, and propellers— by 
the thousands. To build them, and build them fast, 
America must have larger and better equipped air- 
craft factories than ever before. 

Two years ago, United Aircraft began a vast 
expansion program toward this end, involving the 
expenditure of more than 50 million dollars for new 
facilities. That program is now virtually complete. 
More than a million and a half square feet of floor 
space have been added in new buildings, millions of 
dollars worth of new machinery have been installed, 
and employment has jumped from 5,000 to 20,000 

Most important of all — production has steadily 

and rapidly increased. Today three modern plants are 
humming 24 hours a day, building Pratt & Whitney 
engines, Hamilton Standard propellers, and Vought- 
Sikorsky aircraft at the fastest rate in their history. 
Here is proof of the vigor and resourcefulness of 
the American aircraft industry in meeting the unpre- 
cedented requirements for aeronautical equipment at 
home and abroad.

fighten, dive-bombers and uoitli. 


THE flight complement of a modern aircraft car- 
rier may represent more horsepower above 
decks than can be generated by her turbines be- 
low . . . one thousand horsepower and more for 
practically every airplane in the squadrons. 
Wright builds engines for all types of naval 
aircraft, starting with the nine cylinder 
Cyclone of 1000/1200 h.p. for fighters and 
scouts ... the 1600/1700 h.p. Cyclone 14 for 
dive-bombers and for patrol planes working 
in conjunction with the carriers. Projected 



models of still larger patrol bombers will use 
the 2200 h.p. Duplex-Cyclone. 
To supply this power above decks for the 
expanding Navy, Wright is building new 
plants for greater production, training new per- 
sonnel in precision manufacture. Years of engi- 
neering and production experience .ne behind 
the program to provide this country with .m 
impregnable-defense in the shortcstpossibk tune.
